Playgroup NSW, the peak body representing playgroups across NSW, is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting families and strengthening local communities through play. It is all about creative and unstructured learning through play, which is essential to children’s development, as it helps them explore and understand their world.
Playgroup NSW makes a positive difference for children in NSW and help communities to thrive. They support families who are experiencing isolation or need support. Their programs help them reach out to families who may otherwise miss out on the fantastic experience of playgroup. Playgroups are accessible to all families with children 0-5 years old. Children can be accompanied by mothers, fathers, grandparents, nannies or other carers.
At playgroups parents and carers get together with their young children for a couple of hours each week to connect, learn through play and most importantly, have fun in a relaxed environment. Essentially, playgroup is one of the first, and most important social networks for children and families. Held at a variety of community venues in cities as well as regional and remote areas, playgroup activities may involve craft, indoor and outdoor play and morning tea.
