There are a number of options available for becoming a member of Playgroup SA. Each member option has various member benefits.
Become a Member
Everyone who attends an Affiliated 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 Affiliated 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.
