Each week, there are 8,000 sessions of playgroup involving 200,000 people across Australia. With playgroups operating in about 80% of Australian postcodes, you are likely to find a playgroup in your area.

Visit our member organisations in your state or territory to find a playgroup for your family.

If you can’t find the playgroup you’re looking for, why not start a local playgroup? We’re ready to help.
