We welcome more and more attention on the early years. Do not forget the parents' role as their children's first teacher - our parents need more support to do this, not this role taken away and given to childcare workers and teachers.
Playgroup Tasmania brought Member voices to the forefront of its recent submission to the State Government’s Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy discussion paper.
In this submission we urged the Government to implement a coordinated first 1000 days child and family wellbeing playgroup program.
This recommendation is based on our core belief that all Tasmanian children and their families should be able to access the right service, at the right time, at the right place.
The submission reflects our consultation with more than 150 families at playgroups from King Island, the East Coast, inner city Hobart and everywhere between. We heard real stories about the lived experience of being a caregiver and bringing up children in Tasmania.
This year's Annual Report highlights how Playgroup Tasmania playgroups are connecting, supporting and flourishing Tasmanian families throughout the state.
This year's Guide is bursting at the seams with an incredible range of free activities
Nominations close 5pm, Monday 10 October 2022.
