Mallee Family Care led Playgroups are now being offered in two locations across the Buloke Shire in the Donald and Wycheproof communities. Families with children aged 0-5 years are welcome to attend. 

Dynamic Butterflies Playgroup - Donald
Families with children aged 0-5 years are invited to come to the Dynamic Butterflies playgroup on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10.00am to 11.30am during school terms in the Donald Primary School's East Laen Building. Entrance is on the corner of Walker and Waddell Streets near the bike shed.

Playful Potoroos Playgroup - Wycheproof
Families with children aged 0-5 years are invited to come to the Playful Potoroos playgroup on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9.00am to 11.00am during school terms. The Wednesday playgroup is held at the Wycheproof P-12 College and the Friday playgroup is held at the Wycheproof kindergarten.

Both Playgroups offer a structured learning environment that aims to develop children's skills so they can be ready for kinder and school; and each supports parents, carers and families raising children.

Our service is constantly evolving and we welcome your contribution in making it a place which enhances your parenting and supports you in your challenging role as parents and carers of young children. 

Families attending any of our playgroups only need to bring items their child may need - including bottle, formula, nappies, special food or toys. We encourage sun safety so please bring a hat for your child to wear during outside activities.

Tea and coffee is available for the adults. Families are encouraged to bring along a piece of fruit to share for snack time.

All playgroups are free to attend.
