Coronavirus shutdown sees virtual playgroups takeover

The importance of play is something we’re really serious about! Physical distancing won’t stop us connecting with our growing community online. Here’s just one example of Playgroup at Home by Playgroup SA. Our incredible teams across Australia are innovating and adapting playgroup to continue supporting the importance of play and connection!

The ABC recently caught up with Playgroup SA’s to share the success of playgroups connections in supporting parents, caregivers and young children to maintain routines and play through the home environment, and the importance of offering “some kind of normality for children in such challenging times”.

“We think it’s going to be absolutely crucial to have that routine for children, so they know they can tune in and feel like they are part of something, even though it’s a virtual world,” – Playgroup SA CEO, Craig Bradbrook
