ACT Playgroup history

In April 1973, a group of 15 mothers met in the Torrens Community Hall to form Canberra’s first community Playgroup.

By April 1974 there were 73 Playgroups operating in the Canberra area.

Over 40 years later, the ACT can boast over 200 Playgroups with nearly 2200 families enjoying the Playgroup experience each year.
