* You won't want to miss the ride when "the wheels on the bus go

Operating as usual


After starting gruuve over 14 years ago, it is time for me to say farewell!

I have truly loved my time and all the wonderful big and little people I have met along the way and will miss the smiles and songs we share.

A huge Thankyou and shoutout to all the incredible volunteers over the years who have helped each week to bring the fun.

Highlights have been our many bus trips, Easter Park crawls and Wheely fun parties.

Our aim amidst it all has been to let little ones, (and big people too) know they are special and that there is “no one else like YOU in the whole world”. I truly believe this, and have loved every moment of my time in gruuve.

Starting this Thursday 5 May our volunteers, Geraldine and Amy, and some other new faces will start a Thursday morning playgroup in the little tent. BYO morning tea, tea and coffee will be provided for the adults. They will start this week with a Mother’s Day craft. All welcome- mums and bubs, expectant mothers and carers with preschoolers.

Now it’s goodbye from me and gruuve, will miss the Thursday morning fun!
Come and say hi if you see me around!

Ka kite anō

Take care,

Hello from our Gruuve bear!! Have a great day!


This Thursday is St Patricks day and we figured it was time for some fun!
What can you wear that’s green?🎶🧤☘️👗☘️🎶


There will be NO Gruuve for the next two weeks 3 & 10 March as some of our team have omicron.

Please as a precaution if you experience any symptoms please get tested and follow isolation guidelines.

Take care, keep healthy and spend quality time with your little ones.


Meet big bear who is visiting Gruuve this term, can you share pictures of your bears?


Looking forward to Gruuve tomorrow at 9.45am.
At present we are limited to 25 people and team. 🎶🧸🎶

We are looking to trial a rsvp system and gauging interest in offering two sessions back to back during the same time period with morning tea & play in a different space. The first session would be at 9.45am, the second at 10.30am.

This week will just be one session at 9.45am.


Gruuve will start back this Thursday under the red traffic light system with a few changes.

Our gathering will not require vaccine passes and numbers will be limited to 25 plus our staff of volunteers. When we are full we will put a sign out on the path so you can enjoy a play in our playground.

We look forward to welcome you for a fun session and remind you of what we have always said around Gruuve, “we share the love and not the bugs” so please stay home if your little one or yourself are feeling unwell.

Take care, Ruth & team


Popping down the road to the park today, taking the parachute and some bubbles to Whitburn Ave Park if anyone is at a loose end and wants to play. Will be there for an hour from 9.45am. 🙂
