A playgroup is a group of parents, carers and their children aged five and under, who meet to play and socialise. Most playgroups meet weekly for a couple of hours in a variety of venues. At playgroup, children have fun, learn through play, develop new skills and make new friends. Parents benefit through the exchange of parenting ideas, gain valuable support and building social connections.
A Community Playgroup is usually run by parents and carers. The group decides when it meets and the structure of the playgroup. There are many Community Playgroups in the City of Ballarat. Visit Playgroup Victoria to find a community playgroup or to start a community playgroup.
