Playgroups are a fantastic way for children aged 0–5 years to explore and learn new skills, develop their language, use their imagination and make new friends. They also learn to interact with other children, preparing them to transition successfully into kindergarten and primary school. A regular playgroup can also be great for parents and carers too: they offer support, are a way to make friends and give you a platform to share concerns, ideas and advice. Additionally, experienced Maternal and Child Health Nurses are available to visit playgroups to monitor the children's health, helping to foster the successful development of children in Hume City. If there are no playgroups in your area or none that suit your child's needs, why not start your own? All you need is a meeting place, and our Playgroup Support Officers would love to help you get started. For a full list of playgroups in Hume please see the Hume Playgroups Directory on our website. You can contact the Playgroup Support Officers at playgroups@hume.vic.gov.au or phone 9205 2605.
