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.

Play and Learn Supported (PALS) playgroups

PALS playgroups provide physical and social development opportunities for children of all abilities. This is done through music, nature and circus play and other activities in partnership with local cultural, arts and sport and recreation providers.

PALS playgroups run for 10 weeks at a time and aim to

  • build relationships and break down social barriers
  • support families living with disability to increase community participation and access inclusive programs, and
  • connect and build community.

PALS is a national program that aims to create connections between people with disability and the communities they live in by bringing together mixed ability groups. It is funded through the NDIS Information Linkages and Capacity Building Program (ILC).

PALS playgroups have limited numbers and are very popular. If you would like to express your interest in these playgroups, please give us a call on 1300 035 350 or send us a message by clicking the Contact us button below.
