National Families Week
15 – 21 May

Playgroup Australia CEO a Champion
for Stronger Families & Communities

In the lead up to the Federal Election, scheduled for Saturday 18 May, Playgroup Australia has welcomed parliamentary candidates to visit their local playgroup and experience the benefits of play-based early learning and parent engagement, using the opportunity of the visits to lobby for all candidates to prioritise investment in national policy agendas, funding for playgroup, and more research into what works for children and families.

National Families Week, to be held from 15-21 May 2019, is  an initiative of Families Australia that aims to bring families and community organisations around Australia together to recognise the vital role families play in Australian society, no matter what form they take.
