A playgroup is where young children, accompanied by a parent or carer, meet regularly to socialise and play together.

Playgroups are great fun for both grown ups and children. They provide parents and caregivers with the opportunity to meet new people, gain support and ideas. They allow babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to socialise as they play and learn together. All playgroups are different but the emphasis is on fun and friendship.

Cost is low – either free or $1 or $2 per session. Most playgroups close during school holidays.
