Welcome to PlayBox

Box Hill Institute is very excited to provide a safe and fun space for you and your child to play, learn and engage with other parents and children.

What is PlayBox?

PlayBox playgroup is an early learning program facilitated by Box Hill Institute Early Childhood teachers and Diploma of Early Childhood Education & Care students.

Under the guidance of Box Hill Institute teachers, this playgroup also provides a teaching space for our Box Hill Institute Diploma students. PlayBox is a great opportunity for students to increase their work readiness experience and engage with parents and children.

Our playgroup session and activities have been specifically designed by Box Hill Institute Diploma students to provide a variety of engaging learning experiences.

Our sessions

Each session will allow for 10 children up to the age of 5 years old to engage in developmentally appropriate learning experiences and routines.

Our aim is to ensure that all families have an enjoyable experience at PlayBox. Parents are required to stay at the playgroup for the full duration of the session to allow your child to experience the many fun learning opportunities and assist in generating a sense of belonging to the group.
