Ready for life through Playgroup

This year’s theme is “Ready for Life through Playgroup”. We will be showcasing playgroup as an important social and developmental support for families with young children. Research continues to highlight the benefits of play for children’s development, especially in their first five years. Creative and unstructured learning through play is essential to the development of young children. Playgroups are a wonderful place for families to come together and provide opportunities for children to play and become ready for life.

Playgroup is an ideal place to encourage child led play activities which build social and emotional skills, as well as early literacy and numeracy skills which support readiness for school.
