PALS Inclusive Playgroups

Starting early 2021, we’re calling on families and community groups to contribute to development of our new inclusive play program. Help us create the next generation of inclusive playgroups.

Playgroup at Home

Playgroup at Home is a national playgroup initiative which invites our community to share ideas for play, health and wellbeing, and to support opportunities for play from the comfort of home.

Intergenerational Playgroups

Intergenerational playgroups are bridging generational gaps to reduce isolation and ageism within local communities, by bringing communities together through play.

Community Playgroups

There are over 7500 Community Playgroups that usually meet weekly for up to two hours in venues such as community centres, halls, parks and homes of playgroup families.
