There are many reasons why families or communities may look to establish their own Playgroup. They include:

  • A Mother’s group is wanting to continue meeting and evolve into a Playgroup
  • A group of families have similar backgrounds or interest e.g., Spanish speaking
  • There are currently no local Playgroups
  • You can’t find a Playgroup to suit your needs

ACT Playgroups has a team of Playgroup Support and Development professionals who can assist you with establishing a new Playgroup.

The team can take you through each step, including locating a venue, seeking resources, advertising for further members and activity ideas and resources.
