Our Intergenerational Playgroup program provides a unique opportunity for young
children to learn and play, promote interaction with the older generations and
build relationships across generations. Intergenerational Playgroups are open to
families with children aged birth to 5 years and are operating across the ACT in a
variety of aged care facilities.
The Intergenerational Playgroups provide
mutual benefits to all generations
