Supported Playgroups

Currently offered in these postcode areas: 2340, 2343.

What is a supported playgroup?

Supported Playgroups provide an opportunity for parents, carers, and children 0 to 5yrs to come together in a relaxed and friendly environment to play, connect and learn.

Parents and carers stay at playgroup the whole time with their child. This is because playing is one of the most important things a parent or carer can do with their child.

What happens at a Supported Playgroup?

When you come along to a playgroup, you are given the opportunity to encourage your child to participate in a number of supported activities.
These activities cater to a wide variety of ages and stages from birth to school age.
