Supported Playgroups are facilitated by a paid worker or volunteer and target families with high needs. Support organisations start these Playgroups to engage with specific families in the community. Supported Playgroups play an important role in building social support networks as well as giving children opportunities to participate in quality play at a critical time in their development. Supported Playgroups link families into services like Child & Youth Health Centres and Kindergarten.
Benefits of Supported Playgroups include:
- Families are given personalised support by a trained facilitator.
- Families are referred to other support services.
- Playgroups are often funded and are low or no cost to families.
- Parents and caregivers build relationships with families who share similar circumstances.
