Supported Playgroups

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.

Every Body Play Playgroups

Every Body Play is Playgroup SAs Supported Playgroup flagship program led by qualified early childhood facilitators. The program aims to provide safe, accepting and inclusive play opportunities for all children and their families. Our trained facilitators will get to know you and your child and ensure there are a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and resources to support your child’s development at Playgroup.

Activities and resources set-up at each session are designed to cover the AEDC Domainsof development with the EYLF Learning Outcomes in mind. The activities provided ensure children are free to follow their interests. There is a quiet area provided as well as visual supports.

For parents experiencing some challenges with finance and housing, our trained facilitators can link you into local services that can help in these areas.
