Making everyone feel welcome at playgroup

Mothers of preschoolers group with their childrenPlaygroups, by their very nature bring all kinds of people together: mothers, fathers, family day care workers, grandparents, nannies, young parents, older parents, parents who work outside the home, parents who are full time at home with their children, same parents, single parents.

Anyone caring for children 0-5 years old can go to a local playgroup.

Playgroup WA encourages playgroups to allow new families to visit their playgroup or preferred playgroup session for up to three weeks to allow the families to see if it is the right playgroup for them. After three weeks, in order to be covered by insurance, families will need to pay the Playgroup WA membership fee.

The playgroup should then forward the fees to Playgroup WA as soon as possible so the family is insured and can instantly access all the Playgroup WA benefits including the KidzaBuzz Essentials App!
