Playgroups

What are playgroups?


Playgroup is an informal session where mums, dads, grand parents, caregivers, children and babies meet together in a relaxed environment.

 

Playgroup can be held anywhere that is safe for children and where groups of people can meet - community and neighbourhood centres, health clinics, women's centres, preschools and kindergartens, church halls and even in someone's house.

 

No child is too young for playgroup. All children from 0-5 years, including babies, love new experiences and benefit from developing sensory, social and communication skills through activities at playgroup.

 


Types of playgroups

  • Community Playgroups are self-managed by the parents and/or caregivers who attend the playgroup. Currently, around 105,000 families access over 8,000 Community Playgroups across Australia.
  • Supported Playgroups are initiated and facilitated by a paid coordinator and are available to families who might not normally attend a playgroup.
