PlayConnect+ Playgroups

PlayConnectPlus LogoSupporting families with children with developmental concerns or disability

Playgroup WA's free PlayConnect+ supported playgroups are open to children with developmental concerns or disability aged 0-8 years and their families. (Great news! A diagnosis is not necessary).

The PlayConnect+ program is FREE and includes face-to-face weekly supported playgroups, online playgroups, and/or school holiday sessions, in Perth metropolitan and regional areas of Western Australia. The program offers holistic family support including information and advice about other disability support services.

We welcome families with young children with developmental concerns or disability. Children do not need a formal diagnosis to join a supported playgroup and siblings are also welcome to participate.

PlayConnect+ playgroups are facilitated weekly sessions and provide:

  • Safe, supported and appropriate play experiences and peer engagement opportunities for children
  • A space for parents, siblings and extended family to connect with and learn from other families
  • Access to information and resources and links to services in the community
  • Like most other playgroups, Playgroup WA's supported playgroups meet weekly for around two hours. No referral is required and playgroups are free of charge to families.

The PlayConnect+ program is a great way for families to connect, share knowledge, ideas, and have fun!  Parents and caregivers say playgroups are beneficial because they are able to support each other.
