Research Requests

From time to time, Playgroup Victoria will pass on a call for research participants from researchers and/or research organisations that may be of interest to its members through Facebook. Playgroup Victoria in no way endorses these research projects and participants choose to participate at their own risk. Researchers are advised that Playgroup Victoria is not to be publicly acknowledged in any publications as having any level of involvement in the research. 

Playgroup Victoria may provide expert advice to researchers or research bodies if requested, to inform sector research.  Playgroup Victoria’s level of involvement in these projects is limited to the advice provided and does not extend to endorsement of the research outcomes. Playgroup Victoria may be listed in publications as having provided expert advice. 

Playgroup Victoria is interested in partnerships in research projects that specifically examine the outcomes of playgroups and benefit the association. In these instances, Playgroup Victoria will ensure approval from a relevant ethics committee.  Playgroup Victoria will be listed as a partner investigator and acknowledged in all subsequent publications. 

For all research enquiries, contact Dr Joanne Tarasuik: or 0438 682 301.
