Rachel Hockly runs the Church on Vogel community playgroup. Playgroup on Vogel has been operating as a free service to the community since 1991 with some funding being received from the Ministry of Education. It runs out of a purpose built facility at the rear of the church with a large grass field and playgrounds. Our philosophy is guided by Christian principles. We firmly believe that children and their caregivers are Very Important People who deserve to be treated with warmth and respect.

Playgroup on Vogel is open on Monday & Wednesday from 9.30am – 12 noon during the school term. 

Please note that in 2024 there will be no Thursday Playgroup. This has been replaced with Tumble Tots. A delightful gym programme at 9.30am – 10.45am for preschoolers.
