Playgroup Tasmania offers supported playgroups that are safe, warm, welcoming and adaptable spaces for all.
Supported playgroups are free to attend and your child does not need a formal diagnosis.
All supported playgroups:
At Playgroup Tasmania we see the benefits of play for children of all abilities and believe all children and their families should have access to safe and inclusive playgroup programs.
Playgroup Tasmania’s supported playgroups aim to ensure parents and children feel included, safe, understood and valued. There are also many community playgroups that focus on including and welcoming children of all abilities.
Whichever group is the best fit for you and your child, playgroups are a fun way to make connections, find support and build lifelong memories.
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.
At PlayTogether playgroups the Volunteer Playgroup Leaders have had extra training and support to increase their skills and knowledge about disability and inclusion in a playgroup setting.
"Attending Playgroup provides a much-needed social connection for me as a stay-at-home parent and for my daughter as an only child, benefiting both my mental health and her social development."
