Whilst the ACT Government has announced the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in the ACT, Playgroups will not be returning to face to face service for the time being. ACT Playgroups has the safety of all in mind when making this decision.  Further information has been sent directly to registered members via email. ACT Playgroups will shortly have available further resources for when Playgroups may be able to meet at Outdoor locations.

We thank all Members, Friends of Playgroup, Volunteers and Families for their patience and understanding at this time.

Stay safe all.
