Welcome to our Playgroup at Toorak Campus, where we celebrate the essence of early learning through meaningful connections.

Toorak Tot Playgroup is for families with toddlers and young learners (18 months to 3 years) to spend time together in our warm and nurturing space ‘The Pottery.’

Led by our Director of Early Learning, Simone Carter, a dedicated and experienced early learning teacher and leader, our Playgroup offers a relaxed yet engaging setting for you and your child to connect and actively engage in rich and varied learning experiences.

In each session, both children and parents will participate in a variety of play and learning experiences, both indoors and outdoors. Throughout the term, specialist activities such as creative art, storytelling and library time, and music and movement will rotate to enrich the learning journey. A shared morning tea is an integral part of each session.

As your child explores and learns through play, they’ll develop crucial social and practical skills, laying a strong foundation for their journey into early education. Meanwhile, for parents, the Toorak Tot Playgroup provides an invaluable opportunity to forge connections with other families and staff, immerse themselves in the welcoming community here at Geelong Grammar School’s Toorak Campus, and gain insight into our approach to teaching and learning within our Early Learning programme.


Thursday 9:00am – 10:30am
The Toorak Tot Playgroup meets weekly during term time.
