Wandir Gunde (meaning Little Stars) Playgroup is a free playgroup that meets each week during school term offering a friendly place for parents to share time with other families in the Dalby area.  Open to children under school age, we offer a range of activities to meet each child’s varying needs through play and interaction with our supervisors.  Afternoon tea and transport are also provided, along with a full range of play equipment, arts, crafts and music.  This year we introduce our ‘School Ready’ program for 3-4 year olds, helping with the transition to school for both children and parents. 

The playgroup is run by Lorraine Holley, who is an experienced playgroup facilitator and a wonderful, caring mother and grandmother; she welcomes new families to join playgroup at any time.  Playgroup meets at Groom Hall, Dalby State School, Jimbour St from 1pm till 3pm each Wednesday.  To book in to attend, arrange transport or for more information, call Lorraine on 0499 078 016 or Selena Kelly on 07 4679 5900.

Wandir Gunde Playgroup is an initiative of Goondir Health Services and funded through the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
