Playgroups are small informal groups of children and their parents/carers who meet in the local community, often in a community hall. They are aimed at children aged between one and five years and provide opportunities for children to play and interact with other children, and for parents to meet other parents. There are also playgroups aimed at specific cultural groups.

Visit the Playgroup NSW website to find out more about playgroups and locate those in your local area.
