Always great activities going on at your local playgroup- check the Playgroup website to find your nearest one.

Address: Many locations throughout Sydney and NSW.

At a Glance: local weekly meet ups during school terms for 0-5 year old's and their parents, nannies, Grandparents or other caregivers. All for a very low cost. Kids can play and learn and make friendships with other kids. Playgroup is a not for profit community group. Caregivers can make new friends, share information and advice with each other and be involved in the running of the group. Playgroups are all run by volunteers. It's fun, gets you out of the house and you and your children can be involved in group times, singing and dancing, craft activities, morning tea and can even attend special excursions.

Water: the kitchen area at the venue will have tap water and normally an urn to make hot drinks for the adults. Bring your own drink from home for your child.

Age Suitability: 0-5 year olds

Description: Playgroup is all about having fun together through play, socialisation and communicating with each other. It provides caregivers with a supportive environment where they can meet other local parents, swap ideas and help organise fun activities for the children including parties, fundraisers, art and crafts, story times and even music and dancing. It helps children to prepare for the transition to preschool and big school. If there isn't one close to you contact Playgroup NSW and start your own. It is the greatest community activity available for you and your young family.
