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.

Volunteers wanted for Baby Village playgroups

Saturday 18 March, 2023

We need volunteers to help establish Baby Village playgroups around our state.

This great new way to play focuses on babies and/or children who aren't yet moving around independently.

If you're passionate about supporting families with babies, value the importance of baby play and are committed to child safety and wellbeing, this may be the opportunity you've been waiting for.

Please take the time to read the Role Description before expressing your interest to Andrea Read

Please note that satisfactory Working with Vulnerable People Registration is required prior to taking on this volunteer role.

BabyVillages are an intiative of Playgroup Tasmania and funded by the Tasmanian Government's Tasmanian Child Youth and Wellbeing Strategy.
