Frequently Asked Questions
Got a question about membership, logging into your portal or anything related to our website? See below.
Do you offer refunds of playgroup registration and family membership?
During these unprecedented times, Playgroup Victoria are continuing to provide you with as much support as we can from afar. We have ongoing play ideas, inspiration and opportunities to connect. Over the next few months we will be contacting every playgroup to check in and see if there is more that you need from us. We have so much to learn from you and would like you to share this with the wider playgroup community. Your Playgroup Registration and Family Membership is essential to enable us to do this as this helps us to connect with you directly and provide you with information, resources and advice.
For those who have a Family Membership, you have access to the Loyalty Program which enables you to purchase discounted store cards and vouchers. We hope that this will be particularly helpful at this time. If you would like to access this, you can for as little as $10 for 6 months here. Where a playgroup or family are facing financial hardship and require a refund, Playgroup Victoria will provide a refund of the pro rate value remaining based on when the registration or membership commenced.
