Playgroup is a group of mums, dads, grandparents and caregivers who meet together each week with their babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers (aged 0-6 years) for interaction and fun.
Parents and caregivers work together to provide their babies and young children with opportunities to learn through play. Each parent or carer is responsible for their child’s behaviour at playgroup and this helps to ensure close supervision of all children.
- Playgroups provide a large range of toys and activities often not available at home.
- Playgroup activities are low cost.
- Playgroups are not-for-profit and are run by the people who attend.
