Music to our ears
This month we celebrate all things music and movement! Music can be included in everyday routines both at playgroup and at home. You don’t need instruments – use your hands, your feet, utensils, everyday kitchen items, different surfaces and materials. Music play encourages physically active exploration, supports memory and connections to language through sounds and rhythm. Discover the benefits of music play with Playgroup!

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 are bridging generational gaps to reduce isolation and ageism within local communities, by bringing communities together through play.
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.
PlayConnect Playgroups are designed for families of children aged 0-6 years who have unique needs associated with having an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or autism-like characteristics in communication, behaviour or social skills.
PlayTogether is a two-year project aimed at promoting inclusivity and connection for people with disability through community playgroups.
