Community playgroups

We facilitate free, drop-in playgroups in locations in ACT. Playgroups are regular and relaxed opportunities for children who have not yet started school and their parents or carers to play, explore and interact with others.

Children learn through play, and our Families program offers a wide variety of play experiences for children up to five years old in a safe and supportive environment.

Generally run weekly during school terms, our free playgroups are facilitated by friendly and experienced CRCS Family Education team members, who provide age-appropriate and interactive activities, with a focus on building connections within the community and families.

Exploring, playing, learning and socialising at playgroups enhances children’s physical, cognitive, emotional and social development.

At playgroups, our team can also provide support for parents and carers on their parenting journey. This includes information and suggestions regarding parenting and facilitating referrals to our other services or external services if required.

Unless otherwise stated, no bookings are required. Just drop in and have fun!
