What is a playgroup?

A playgroup is a group of parents or carers who meet weekly with their babies, toddlers and/or pre-schoolers. Playgroups are about children having fun and learning through play, while the parent/carer makes new friends and shares experiences.

 

At playgroup your child will have the opportunity to:

  • Be stimulated and have fun
  • Enjoy activities they may not do at home
  • Learn to socialise with other children
  • Improve language and communication
  • Explore a new environment with different experiences
