We provide a playgroup with an added emphasis on music and movement through child appropriate songs and activities.
Love it! The music and movement is great. The welcome song makes us feel connected and even gets sung throughout the week in our house!
Mini Melody Movers playgroup is for Pre-school children with their parents, grandparents and carers. Playgroup provides opportunities for carers to share and engage with their children through play and music.
Indoor play involves many things for the kids to interact with such as a climbing frame, puzzles, a home corner, dress-ups, puppets, trains, cars, duplo etc. There are also simple crafts and painting and a great kid-friendly outside area where we have a fantastic cubby/shop as well as ride on cars and other toys.
During playgroup time the children are encouraged to sit at tables and have their own morning snack. Carers provide a snack (no nuts) for their own children and we provide tea/coffee.
Our helpers love coming to Playgroup each week and are very happy to help your child or have a chat to you.
The Playgroup area includes its own toilet and baby change room.
Held at Manningham Uniting Church and Community Centre

About your playgroup leaders – Steven & ALison
Steven love’s singing and playing his guitar, particularly when people join in. His Dutch heritage is a strong influence in this love of music. He is a Dad with a teenage daughter, so it has been a while since he has been involved with playgroups. Before COVID, he and his wife co-ordinated the Messy Church service at Eltham Montmorency Uniting Church, where he leds the music.
Steve believe that a musical playgroup is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy & share the gift of music and God’s love for us. Current research has shown the benefits of music and movement in the early development of growing minds & bodies. He really looks forward to meeting you & having fun playing, moving & singing.
Alison’s first experience of playgroup was with her son 8 years ago at this very church. When she moved to Brisbane in 2015 she was encouraged to become the coordinator of the Chapel Hill Uniting Church playgroup which she did for 3 years.
Alison believes that playgroup is an important outreach for this church to continue to be involved with. She’s passionate about creating a community of support to parents and caregivers. Alison want’s to create a space where the bond between child and guardian can be fostered through intentional and child led play. Children have a natural affinity for music, rhymes and dance and we hope to use this to engage them and develop in them the knowledge that they are a valued, special and unique child of God.
