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.

Organisational playgroups

Organisational playgroups are provided with support by another organisation. They have a facilitator who is there to provide support to families and may focus on a particular need or vulnerability in the community. These playgroups offer opportunities for parents to meet, make connections and share their experiences, as well as for children to play, learn and socialise. Examples of organisational playgroups include

  • Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD), including migrant and humanitarian entrant families
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
  • Young parent families
  • Socially isolated
  • Living on low incomes
  • Experiencing mental health issues
  • Living with a disability (either the parent/caregiver or child).

"It's helpful seeing that kids do things at all different stages and each baby is different, so you don’t compare."
