Playgroup Tasmania acknowledges that we live, work and play on Aboriginal land, land of the palawa/pakana people of lutruwita (Tasmania). We pay our respects to the Tasmanian Aboriginal community, to elders past and present and to all those who continue caring for country, sharing stories and upholding rights.
We need volunteers to help establish BabyVillage playgroups around our state.
This great new way to play focuses on babies and/or children who aren't yet moving around independently.
Playgroup leaders can now access easy-to-use resources and training online at the Playgroup Tasmania Resource Hub.
In the online resource hub, you’ll find information, tips and resources on a wide range of topics including two interactive modules on how to make your playgroup inclusive and ensuring your playgroup is child safe.

"Having access to a variety of toys has let me see my bub is ready for different stages, like when he holds and grabs toys that we don’t have at home."
