A new playgroup in Cranbourne run by Life!Central Services has been donated a brand new coffee machine by a local business.
The PlayLife! Playgroup launched on 1 March offers a free service to members of the community who may be facing hardship or cannot access other childcare.
PlayLife! organiser and assistant pastor at Life!Central Sheree Crone said the playgroup was a great way for people in the community to access free occasional childcare.
“There are no memberships, PlayLife! Is a free playgroup that any family with children – newborns to pre-school age – can attend,” she said.
“PlayLife! has been made to be simple and fun to attend for children and their parents/carers, so apart from signing in, there is no extra paperwork, membership or anything else to worry about.”
The group has recently been gifted a brand-new coffee machine from the Good Guys Cranbourne to give parents/carers a treat and to help raise some money for the group.
“Our new coffee machine, donated by The Good Guys Cranbourne, will allow us to provide a special treat for parents and carers,” Ms Crone said.
“The cost of a coffee is a gold coin donation, which will help us with running costs at PlayLife! and help us keep PlayLife! a free service.”
The PlayLife! Playgroup runs every Wednesday during school terms from 10am to 11am at Life!Central – 12 Arundel Street Cranbourne.
Interested families can come along anytime, or call Life!Central for more details on 5996 7011.
