Share your stories

As the face of playgroups past, present and future – we want to share your stories, pictures and videos! Playgroup Australia is currently undertaking a Declaration on Playgroup. A research project which looks to understand the impact and benefit of playgroups across Australia.

A world of difference

What does playgroup mean to you?

Whether you are a past playgrouper, currently attend a playgroup, or if you are an organisation where playgroups are held, we would love to hear from you! It’s stories like yours that help us keep creating a village through play! We are especially keen to hear from our youngest playgroupers, after all, they are what brings us all together!

Children’s Stories

Calling all playgroup children, what does playgroup mean to you? We know it’s not everyday you get to have your say, your way. We want to change that. Share your stories and pave the way for future generations of play.

Past Families

Perhaps your children have started school or are all grown up? Or maybe you attended playgroup as a child or caregiver. We would love to hear what impact it has had on your life.

Current Families

Whether you are a newcomer or regular playgroup participant we would love to hear your stories. This is your chance to help us grow and continue creating a village you are proud to share.

Organisation Stories

Are you part of an organisation where playgroups are held? Perhaps a school, church, community space, play centre or cafe? If local playgroups are held at your venue, we would love to hear from you.

We love to hear these stories!

When I tell people where I work, people tell me their playgroup stories”, says Fiona May, CEO at Playgroup Australia, “they tell me they attended playgroup 40 years ago when their children were small; that they made friends that they still take holiday with; that their children went from playgroup to university together; and that they as parents don’t know how they would have survived the early years without it.
