All Children, All Abilities, All Possibilities

Who is it for?

Koorana’s Playgroups are for families with a child between the ages of 0 and 6. All groups are tailored to the individual needs of the families attending.

What happens at Supported Playgroups?

Supported Playgroups provide lots of play activities suitable for your child’s age so they can play alongside and with other children, make friends, and have fun.

Babies and toddlers are included, with activities provided for you to enjoy together.

Language and music group experiences are provided to help your child learn new skills, for example concentration and listening, sharing and turn taking, communicating and participating with others.

This develops your child’s independence and confidence, and prepares them for other educational settings such as preschool, day care or school.

Staff will provide you with information about other services and community activities that may be useful, and will suggest practical ideas to assist you in your parenting role.

Where does it happen?

In community halls and parks across the Bankstown and Canterbury local government areas.

How long does it go for?

Each Playgroup runs for 2 hours once a week in school terms. Families generally participate in Supported Playgroups for up to 12 months.

What if I do not speak English?

Your worker can arrange for an interpreter if you need.

What does it cost?

Attendance at Playgroups is free, as government funding covers all costs.
