Playgroup Tasmania is a not-for-profit organisation that’s helped young children for over 40 years. 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. They are a peak body representing over 35 volunteer-led community playgroups and 15 organisational playgroups, including child and family centres and neighbourhood and community houses. Each year more than 500 families engage with Playgroup Tasmania as members with even more attending playgroups each week. Playgroup Tasmania also offers a program called PlayConnect. These playgroups offer a ‘soft entry’ for families with a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder to be connected with the community. Playgroup has a wide range of membership options to suit your needs.
