Playgroups

Kids and parents learn together. Young children from diverse communities learn about the world, develop kindergarten and school readiness, build social and bilingual language skills.

Thank you for running playgroups! It is nice to see other people again and is a happy time for children where they can talk, sing, play and know that someone is watching them.

With 32 playgroups across the northern and western suburbs, we have over 300 parents that benefit from this valuable service. Our weekly playgroups are well attended by families from cultural backgrounds that include: Assyrian-Chaldean, Iranian, Syrian, Iraqi, Hazara, Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri-Lankan Tamil, Filipino, South Sudanese, Horn of Africa, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Chin and Karen Burmese.

Our playgroups: 

  • Support children’s bilingual language development and provide babies, toddlers and young children a wide variety of early learning experiences.
  • Are run in local schools and community centers and easily accessible to families
  • Gives mums, dads, grandparents and caregivers a chance to share ideas and experiences; gain practical information about health, nutrition and child well-being
  • Provide social support and friendship
