Welcome Northmead Anglican Playmorning
Playmorning is a playgroup for kids & their carers. Playmorning is a place where we gather to learn about God through stories, music, craft and of course, play! Playmorning is a community in which we enjoy time with our kids and connect with other ‘grown ups’. Mums, Dads, grandparents and carers are all welcome with their kids aged 0-5. This year Playmorning will just be running on Mondays.

Where: Northmead Anglican Church (4-8 Thomas Street, Northmead)
Cost: $20 per family per term, paid on Week 1. Note: You may pay by Eftpos at the Welcome Table.
New Families: May join at the beginning of each term & must register before the start of term.
Who is Northmead Anglican Playmorning?
Playmorning is run by volunteers from Northmead Anglican Church. We are all committed and passionate Christians. We volunteer because our love for Jesus calls us share the good news about Jesus Christ, love our community and care for those in it. In Circle Time, we share a Bible story and sing songs about God and his son Jesus. We love to talk about Jesus and share the amazing things he has done, especially as we celebrate Easter and Christmas. Anybody, regardless of religious belief, is welcome at Playmorning.

What does a typical morning look like?
10am – Sign in, Craft & Soft-fall Play
Check in and sanitise.
As families arrive and sign in, we will have outside play in the soft-fall area and a simple craft activity set up under the shade cloth.
10.30am – Circle Time (inside)
Circle Time is led by a member of the Playmorning Team and begins each week with our ‘Hello Song’. We ask that carers participate with their kids, and model good listening as we sing, dance and listen to stories. This time will generally include some nursery-rhyme style songs & finger-plays, some songs about God and a story from the Bible. Circle Time is also when we make announcements.
10.45am – Free Play & Food
Morning Tea mats will be set up outside.
You will need to bring morning tea food both for yourself and for your kids (no nut products please). Please also bring water bottles.
When possible, we will run the coffee cart (which is free!) for adults.
Free Play areas are set up both inside and outside. Carers are responsible for the supervision of their kids at all times. This relaxed free play time provides opportunities for carers to not only play with their children but also to connect with other adults.
Our air conditioned INSIDE SPACE has a few chairs for mums & bubs, a quiet baby corner, a reading nook, as well as a home/kitchen area, blocks, cars, dolls and dress-ups among other things.
We have two OUTSIDE SPACES – a soft-fall area, and a big grassy backyard. Outside spaces include a sandpit, swings, tricycles, small climbing frames, balls and other activities, a large picnic rug and water play table in the warm weather. A beautiful tree in the backyard provides some great shade during the hotter months.
11.50am – Pack Away Time
When the ‘Pack Away’ song plays, we would love your help to pack up! Inside and outside spaces need to be packed away and we appreciate your help with this.
Health, Hygiene and Safety
Please stay home if unwell, including with minor cold symptoms (cough, fever 37.5 or above, sore throat, runny nose). Please note: anyone who is visibly unwell will not be allowed entry. If a child has been vomiting or had diarrhoea in the last 48 hours, please keep them at home. To keep everyone healthy, it is important to follow good hygiene practises whilst at Playmorning. For example, hand washing, putting ‘mouthed toys’ in the mouthed toys bucket and notifying us of anything that needs cleaning. Please also notify us if your child has been unwell with a contagious illness and attended Playmorning during the contagious period. This is so we can alert others if needed. Of course, we will ensure your privacy in doing so. Just remember, we are all parents too so completely understand that sometimes, no matter how careful we are, sickness happens. Lets just all try to do our best to look after each other!
Peanuts and Other Nut Products…
For the safety of the children at Playmorning who have allergies, we ask that you do not bring any foods that contain peanuts or other nut products.
Don’t hesitate to grab a member of the Playmorning Team to ask your question, or feel free to email us at by clicking this link.
We look forward to getting to know you and your family!
