Find a Playgroup
There are thousands of local playgroups all over Australia. If there are several in your area you might like to visit more than one to find the one that most suits you. Playgroup is a great place to get to know other families, but it can take time to for friendships to form. Although you may be nervous initially, over time playgroup can become your extended family.
State and Territory Playgroup Organisations provide valuable support to community playgroups through assistance with venues, insurance and play ideas. You can also become a member of your state or territory playgroup organisation to stay connected and take advantage of the other benefits they offer.
“We have three children and have made some lifelong friends through playgroup. It is a ridiculously economical way to spend time with your kids and it very comfortably becomes part of your routine.”
