Community playgroups are regular gatherings of parents and caregivers with their under-school age children.
Parents manage and lead community playgroups and organise play and social activities for the group.
The groups give:
- an opportunity for your child to play with other children
- a chance to meet other families in your community
- you a group to talk to about parenting and share experiences with.
First-Time Parent Groups finish, often these groups of families will continue to meet as a community playgroup.
There are also playgroups for different groups, including dads and grandparents.
Each community playgroup will be different, but usually community playgroups involve activities such as:
- music and singing
- imaginative play
- outdoor and free play
- art and craft
There is a fee involved in community playgroups to cover various expenses such as insurance and venue hire.
