Playgroups provide parents and children with the opportunity to meet new families, gain support, share ideas and have fun. They allow babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers the opportunity to socialise as they play and learn together. All playgroups are different but the emphasis is on fun and friendship.

The playgroup team can also provide support to new or existing playgroups by offering ideas for equipment, resources and activities, as well as information about and links to other children's services in Hobsons Bay.
