Cairns Little Diggers Playgroup

 Every Tuesday 9.00am-11.00am & Friday 9.00am-11.00am (closed public holidays)

Our Cairns Little Diggers Playgroup aims to provide children aged 1 – 5 years the opportunity to meet other children in a play based developmental environment and for parents/carers to establish support networks.

We have both a wonderful inside and outside play area. Outside, the children enjoy the sand pit as well as the ride-on toys, slides, mini basketball hoop and much more. Inside, we have a co-ordinator who runs structured craft activities, singing and story time as well as activity stations for the children to engage in free play. The children can also enjoy the variety of toys including musical instruments, toys and books.

Parents and carers are required to lend a “Helping hand”

  • Signing attendance book
  • Setting up toys and activities
  • Chopping up morning tea for the children to share
  • Supervising morning tea for the children
  • Supervising all children during playtime
  • Cleaning and packing up

At playgroup, parents and carers stay and play with the children and help them socialise with other children.

Come along and share experiences, learn from each other and make new friends.


Sample activity based on our shared reading book – I Don’t Want A Posh Dog.


$3 per family per session. Please bring a piece of fruit for the children to share at morning tea time.
