Intergenerational playgroups bring together multiple generations, supporting communities and nurturing relationships through play.
What is an Intergenerational Playgroup?
Our Intergenerational Playgroup programs support parents and caregivers with children under 5 to connect with older people, with the aim of bringing together the young and young at heart – to build relationships through play.
Partnering with ABC TV + iview
In 2021, Playgroup Australia partnered with OPAN for the ‘Stay Connected and Supported in Your Community’ campaign in association with ABC TV + iview’s award-winning documentary series Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds. The delightfully inspiring Season 2 followed a group of older adults living alone, who joined a group of lively 4-year-olds in an intergenerational play school – for learning, connection and friendship.
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”
