The Playhouse

A drop-in community centre for families with young children 0-5 years at Cnr. Charles & Forbes Sts, Devonport.

The Playhouse

Open school days, Monday to Friday - 9.30am to 12.30pm (Phone: 03 6424 7060)

Devonport Community House supports The Playhouse and encourages everyone in the local community to participate.  No need to book, just come along with your under 5's or on your own to chat or catch up with other parents and carers.  New to the area??  It's an ideal meeting place!

Volunteers and mentors are always welcome.  Volunteers work in pairs and are generally rostered on for one session a week. Volunteers are able to bring their children under 5 while volunteering. We provide a safe and stimulating environment for all children to play and socialise in, with various activities and celebrations held regularly. The little gym is open daily with padded mats and lots of fun play equipment.

Ask for a Playhouse newsletter for what's happening throughout the term.  And enjoy your time with us!
