Playgroups generally meet for a couple of hours per week and are usually
attended by families from the local community. Most ACT Playgroups’
registered playgroups are parent led community playgroups.
Community playgroups all run a little differently depending on the group dynamic. Most groups meet in a community space or venue, such as a Community Centre, school hall or aged care facility. All group members assist in the running of the Playgroup, organising activities, story time, singing etc, and with the set up and pack up, as well as the cleaning at the end of each session.
Some Playgroups are very structured with a set routine each week, while others are unstructured and take the lead of the children, and other Playgroups still fall somewhere in between!
