Playgroups meet up for socialising and learning where families can enjoy a few hours of fun with their children aged birth to five years.
Playgroups usually meet once a week for two hours. Venues in your local community include community centres, schools, homes or parks. Download files below for more information.
Most playgroups are casually run by parents or carers with the times, venue and play activities chosen to suit the group. Playgroups can have excursions or incursions and are encouraged to have insurance and stay connected when parents return to work. Playgroup Victoria has information on playgroups across Victoria and resources.
Some playgroups are led by a facilitator to provide more support for young parents, children with additional needs or multicultural families.
