Welcome to Yokine Community Playgroup
Thank you for visiting our website. Yokine Community Playgroup is a wonderful facility provided to us by the City of Stirling. The playgroup centre is independently run and operated by a committee made up of Mums who are all members of YCPG. Our community of Mums enhances the standard of care and community interaction within the centre, as we all strive to provide the best facility for our little ones.
Yokine Community Playgroup provides a fun and safe social environment for parents/caregivers and their children to meet and play. Anyone with young children from birth until 5 years of age are welcome to join, and you don't need to live in the area to become a member.
We are located at 26 Ranger Road (corner of Blythe Ave) Yokine, Perth.
Yokine Community Playgroup is open all year round and does not close for school holidays!
Playgroup provides a wonderfully safe environment for children under the age of 5 to play, interact, and socialise with friends. This is really beneficial for children’s developmental skills and also enhances their social skills.
Yokine Community Playgroup’s mini member's ages range from birth right up to the age of five.
There are a huge variety of toys for indoor and outdoor use at the centre, a craft room full of all sorts of art supplies, and a dress up room, which is a big hit with toddlers (aged 2-4). The centre is also fully equipped with a kitchenette, which is great for making tea and coffee so Mums can unwind and is also very handy for food preparation.

The playgroup can be a great environment for parents/caregivers to relax with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the stress-free ambience of the centre while catching up with friends. The facility grounds are completely fenced in and this gives the little ones the freedom to explore outdoors within a safe environment.
We provide the flexibility of independently run groups with children who are all of the similar ages. When creating your own group or joining an existing group, the group will be independently run and have one nominated team leader who is responsible for opening up for your session each week.
Our facility is a dedicated playgroup venue. The centre consists of one large room, one dress up room, one craft room, a modern kitchen (with tea and coffee making facilities, microwave, small oven/grill, filtered water cooler and fridge). There is a large outdoor play area, with a shed full of outdoor toys. There is a bathroom, with kid-friendly toilets & sinks.
The centre is professionally cleaned once a week and the playgroup committee organises regular busy bee's throughout the year in order to keep the centre cleaned and to make sure all the toys are organised and in proper working order.
The centre has a comprehensive range of age-appropriate toys including:
A large variety of art & craft supplies
Pretend play including a train table, dolls house, home corner with kitchens, dolls and prams.
A well-stocked dress-up room
Play tools and blocks

Members are invited and encouraged to recommend toy purchases for the playgroup. If there is something that you would like the committee to purchase, please let us know.
Unfortunately, toys cannot be borrowed and taken home from the centre as it is too hard to keep track of who has what. For your benefit, we also ask that you do not bring toys from home as they can be forgotten and could get lost.
