Playgroup Tasmania acknowledges that we live, work and play on Aboriginal land, land of the palawa 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.

"Playgroup was a wonderful resource for connecting with other parents and children when my children were very young. Now that they are older I am happy to help make that service available to other families."
