Intergenerational Play

Through partnerships with aged care services, retirement villages and seniors’ groups – Intergenerational Play playgroups are bridging generational gaps to reduce isolation within local communities.  By inviting children and families to join with local residents, the program brings people from all walks of life together.

Community Playgroups

Community Playgroups meet once or twice a week for up to two hours in venues such as community centres, halls, parks and homes. Community Playgroups are delivered by parents/carers with Playgroup Tasmania’s  support, resources through visits, phone calls and online communication.

PlayConnects

PlayConnect Playgroups are designed for families of children aged 0-6 years who have unique needs associated with having an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or autism-like characteristics in communication, behaviour or social skills

Organisational Playgroups

Organisations such as not-for-profit community groups, child care agencies, Family Day Care Schemes and Churches that run their own playgroups and already hold insurance coverage, may affiliate with Playgroup Tasmania and hold an Organisational Membership.
