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.

PlayConnect+ playgroups

Children with behavioural issues and their families can sometimes feel excluded from traditional playgroups.

All children are welcome at PlayConnect+, and it is a safe, low stimulus, non-judgemental environment designed to cater to children with a disability and/or developmental concerns.

PlayConnect+ is a facilitated, supported playgroup for children with a disability and/or developmental concerns and their families. (Great news! A diagnosis is not necessary).

PlayConnect+ program is FREE and includes:

  • Face-to-face weekly, one and a half to two-hour supported playgroups.
  • Facilitation of transitions to other educational settings to support school readiness.
  • Holistic family support including information and advice about other disability support services that we have established partnerships with.
  • It is a free playgroup and all family members including siblings with or without a disability and/or developmental concerns are welcome.
  • PlayConnect+ playgroups provide support, social interaction and skills and techniques to try at home.

PlayConnect+ ensures that young children have access to consistent, high quality social engagement on a regular basis.

"We love Playconnect. I wish we could attend more than once a week. It’s been so great for children with needs and delays to just be accepted, and parents to be heard and understood. It’s the best.”
