“Safe and friendly environment for my kids.”

I have been a member at Playhouse for a year now and it is by far my sons favourite place to go. He really loved when the petting zoo came to visit the playhouse and always talks about the trip to the fire station. I would definitely recommend Playhouse to anyone looking for a fun and safe environment for kids to run wild.

“My kid has her own friends and moves confidently around the space.”

When I have the kids I am often lost for something to do with them. Chloe has made lots of friends at playhouse so I can attend anytime knowing that Chloe will have kids to play with and I can chat with likeminded parents and look after baby Will. There is loads for them to do and Chloe loves to show me her favourite toys which are playing with dolls and ride on toys and having swing.

“Everything we wanted and more.”

This year is our third year at the Playhouse. We just love the break we great at the playhouse, where Abby gets to play and I get to catch up with other mums. We have made many new friends at the Playhouse. We love that we can happily play inside or outside and that there is such a variety of activities to keep us busy. Although we are only able to come to the playhouse 1-2 days a week due to work commitments, we still find it a worthwhile and extremely valuable part of our lifestyle. Some days we only come for an hour just to have lunch with friends after swimming. Abby loves having her party at the playhouse and I love how easy it is. We feel so fortunate to have such a great facility available to us for only $5 per week. I just love that I can spend a several hours there and I can come home not spending any $$.

A unique space that allows kids to form their own connections, develop their interests freely with their carers support.

“fun, fun, fun and all the mess stays away from my house.”

Im NOT crafty, don't particularly like mess at my house and I have the most artistic, love paint and glue/glitter daughter.... Fantastic. Well yes, cause all of this is "always done at the Playhouse!".  I just love that she has a space to be creative without me having to say, stop, careful, OMG.

“4 thumbs way up from my 2 sons!”

My little monsters are intense. Lets say they are very active. At the Playhouse they can ran and go from activity to activity without me worrying if they are safe. They love it. They just think its the best place in the world.  All is cater for them. Yeah, the Playhouse its my home, for playgroup and witching hour.  Thank you for such an awesome space
