The City of Canterbury Bankstown has opened its doors to local parents who do not currently use child care facilities.
Mayor Khal Asfour said Council is operating a new playgroup, called Play and Learn, every Wednesday at Campsie.
"Parents who do not have their children in child care can bring them to the playgroup and interact with other parents and our qualified educators," Mayor Asfour said.
"For just a gold coin donation, they can share tips and learn new techniques on how to educate infants, while the children have the opportunity to socialise in a larger group setting."
Parent, Julia Carroll, said her son learns more skills by interacting with other children in a group at the centre, rather than at home.
"He really enjoys doing new activities at the playgroup, especially craft," she said.
"He always comes home with something new to show the family."
The City of Canterbury Bankstown operates six child care facilities:
Four Long Day Care centres, which provide education and care for children up to six years, Monday to Friday (7am-6pm);
An Occasional Care centre, which provides education and care for children up to six years for up to 30 hours a month; and
An Outside School Hours and Vacation Care centre, which provides before and after-school care.
Council has been operating nationally-accredited child care centres for 42 years and now has 45 specialised educators providing care for more than 250 families.
