Newtown Playgroup is the ideal place to form friendships and allow children to play in a safe, casual and welcoming environment.

Located centrally in Geelong, sessions at Newtown Playgroup run on weekday mornings and afternoons (subject to availability), and are run by the parents, grandparents and carers themselves. Kids can enjoy both indoor and outdoor play areas with equipment and toys suitable for ages from birth to about 5 years. Each session runs for two hours.

Newtown Playgroup sessions run all year, closing over Christmas and on public holidays, and are open during the mid-year school holidays.

New mothers groups in Geelong who are wanting a venue to meet each week are also welcome.

Newtown Playgroup's modern facilities are located on the Ariston House complex, corner of Pakington Street and Aberdeen Street, Newtown.
