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.

Organisation playgroups

Organisation playgroups are run by a variety of not-for-profit groups and have a facilitator who is there to provide support to families.

These types of playgroups may focus on a particular need or vulnerability in the community such as:

  • Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, including migrant and humanitarian entrant families
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
  • Young parent families
  • Socially isolated families
  • Families living on low incomes
  • Families experiencing mental health issues
  • Families with member/s living with a disability (either the parent/caregiver or child).

"There aren't many activities for young families in the local area and we have a great group of regulars who are now all friends and we look forward to catching up each week."
