Our History

Playgroup Australia is nearly 40 years old.

Across Australia, the playgroup movement has been providing and supporting playgroups for 50 years, through volunteerism and the outreach work of each state and territory organisation. Our members and partners ensure that young children, along with their parents or carers, can access quality playgroups nationwide.

Supporting playgroups for nearly 40 years

Playgroup has a long and credible history as one of Australia’s largest civil society movements.

“Playgroup helped me through many times in my life, most of all it helped me find my ‘brave key’, one that I would need for many years to come.”
