Family Activities

Discover Playgroups

Playgroup is an informal session where mums, dads, grandparents, caregivers, children and babies meet together in a relaxed environment. Groups are volunteer led and usually low or no cost.

No child is too young for playgroup. All children from 0–5 years of age, including babies, love new experiences and benefit from developing sensory, social and communication skills through activities at playgroup.

Meet new people

An important part of playgroup is having parents and caregivers stay to interact with each other and to play with the children. For first-time mothers and fathers, or those new to Brimbank, playgroup offers a great way to meet other local parents.

Playgroups with extra support for families

Facilitated playgroups are led by a trained facilitator and provide families with vital support, guidance, community connection and links to essential services.

Smalltalk Playgroups

Brimbank have 12 supported playgroups with Smalltalk parenting strategies for families with children aged between birth up to 4 years http://www.smalltalk.net.au/

The program supports parents to create a positive home learning environment for their young children. Eligibility criteria applies.

Shopping Centre Outreach Playgroups

Brimbank have two shopping centre playgroups facilitated by bicultural facilitators located in Sunshine & Deer Park.
