Get out of the house and make new friends at Playgroup. Playgroups provide babies, toddlers and young children with a wide variety of early learning experiences including play time, music, stories, arts and crafts and excursions. They also get to make friends with other children and develop valuable social skills.

Parents and caregivers will also benefit from attending Playgroup. You get to meet others and share parenting ideas and experience as well making friends yourself.

There are also specialized playgroups for parents with children who have special needs. There are the PlayConnect groups which are designed for parents of children under 6 with Autism Spectrum Disorders or like behaviours. Also, there is MyTime, a support group for parents and carers of children 0-6 years who have additional needs and or chronic medical conditions. All PlayConnect  and MyTime sessions are free and morning tea is provided. Siblings are welcome.
