There are a number of options available for becoming a family member or registering your Playgroup with Playgroup SA. Organisations, or churches running Playgroups also have the option of affiliating their Playgroups with Playgroup SA and the coordinators accessing the benefits.
Please note: All memberships run on a calendar year basis
Become a Member
Everyone who attends a Registered Playgroup is required to pay the Family Membership Fee. This low cost membership allows families to enjoy all the services of Playgroup SA including specific individual Playgroup insurance cover. New members can enjoy two weeks of attending Playgroup as a trial before they are required to pay the Family Membership Fee.
It’s easy to become a member. Simply complete the Family Membership Form and pay the appropriate fee to Playgroup SA.
A Family membership also entitles families to attend other Registered Playgroups. There’s no limit to how many Playgroups you can attend.
Become a Family Day Care Member
A Family Day Care Membership covers a maximum of four children attending Playgroup with their Family Day Care provider at any one time and is very much like a Family Membership.
