National Advocacy

Playgroup Australia is an organisation that is proud to lead through its advocacy work.

Playgroup is good for the economy

“Children who play at home and participate in community-provided play opportunities have better educational outcomes over the longer term.”

– Playgroup Statement, 2022

We strive to be informed, articulate and forward thinking in identifying and responding to issues and matters relating to playgroup.  We embrace changes in the way parents live and work, and work to represent family interests to sustain the playgroup movement.

We recognise that play and playgroup are important for children, their caregivers and their communities. We are committed to raising the value of play and playgroup with governments and other stakeholders to ensure that playgroup continues to be available to all Australian children and families.
