Playgroups help parents, grandparents, carers and children come together to learn, play and interact in a safe environment.

Playgroup Queensland manages the guidelines that many playgroups use.

Common features of playgroups include:

  • children are aged from birth to school age
  • children's play is guided and supported by parents, grandparents and carers
  • a stimulating environment with a variety of learning experiences
  • meeting at venues such as community and neighbourhood centres, church halls, kindergartens or people's homes
  • group members giving small donations, if required, to support the running of the group.

Some playgroups may include families with similar circumstances and background.
