Playgroup Victoria

Playgroups bring young children, parents, families and communities together to learn and develop through informal play activities and social interaction.  Playgroups help parents and caregivers build social and support networks that encourage and assist them in their valuable parenting role.  They help families to have fund and relax and to build friendships that last beyond playgroup.

Maureen and Louise are the Playgroup Development Co-ordinators for the South West Region and have an office at the Sebastopol Primary School (Warreen Street, Sebastopol).
