About Us

Newtown Playgroup is located centrally in Geelong and we are open in school holidays!

Newtown Playgroup Inc is a not for profit organisation offering playgroup at the Ariston City Learning & Care Centre in Newtown, Geelong.

Newtown Playgroup offers a modern playgroup facility with an informal and fun atmosphere for parents and children to meet and interact. We have indoor and outdoor play areas with equipment suitable for ages from birth to around 5 years (check out the Activities and Gallery) .

Playgroup sessions comprising of 8 to 10 families are hosted by the parents and held in the morning or afternoon, Monday to Friday. We operate all year, closing for Christmas holidays, public holidays and rare days when the Ariston centre is closed.

Newtown Playgroup welcomes individual families, new mothers/parents and groups in Geelong, wanting a venue to meet each week.

We encourage you to be involved with the committee to keep this Geelong Playgroup a community led facility.
