Intergenerational Play

Intergenerational Play for all ages

Celebrating the richness of every generation

Intergenerational Playgroups are fast becoming a favourite playgroup for families and communities around Australia.  While sharing a similar approach to regular Community Playgroups, Intergenerational Play offers something extra special.

Through partnerships with aged care services, retirement villages and seniors’ groups – Intergenerational Play playgroups are bridging generational gaps to reduce isolation and ageism within local communities.  By inviting children, parents, grandparents and caregivers to join with local residents, Playgroup Tasmania are endeavouring to drive change and bring people from all walks of life together to create a village through play.

Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds

In partnership with Playgroup Australia and the ABC, we are delighted to be taking part in a new series, “Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds”, aimed at raising awareness of the benefits of play for all ages.

“While Grandparents add to children’s lives, children add to their grandparents lives too. Many older people say that keeping up with their grandchildren keeps them young.”

Playgroup Australia has partnered with OPAN for the ‘Stay Connected and Supported in Your Community’ campaign in association with ABC TV + iview’s award-winning documentary series Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds. The delightfully inspiring season two, follows a group of older adults living alone who join a group of lively 4-year-olds in an intergenerational play school for learning, connection and friendship.
