Friday Playgroup | 10am Fridays during School Term

We are meeting online.

During the lockdown, we will be releasing craft packs every fortnight for you to pick up from St James Croydon. You can find these outside the church office. Then for those who would like to join in Bronwen will be hosting a short Zoom Craft & Storytime on Fridays at 10 am.

This will happen each week until we meet in person. We have specified a craft for each of these weeks in the pack. You will receive the zoom link via the WhatsApp group each Friday morning.

What is St James Outdoor Playgroup?


Playgroup offers a fun playtime for children 0-5 years and their parents or carers. Playgroup runs from 10 am – 11:30 am each Friday in school term.

This is your invitation to join us at St James Outdoor Playgroup! Think wide open green spaces, trees, fresh air and sunshine as our play area. We are planning lots of active activities, water play, outdoor toys, chalk, parachute, craft, story time… Oh the fun to be had!

As we are still in a pandemic some precautions need to be taken. Playgroup will be first come first served and once we hit site capacity all others will be turned away. We ask that if you or your children display any cold/flu-like symptoms, have been to a covid hotspot, or been a close contact of a confirmed case, or are awaiting covid test results, that you stay at home. You will be turned away if any of these conditions are breached.

A gentle reminder-you are responsible for your own children. Please ensure they do not scale our fence/gate/barriers and to apply sunscreen as necessary. BYO morning tea (no nuts please).
