For MCH nurses

Families often find out about playgroup for the first time through their Maternal and Child Health (MCH) nurses. We believe MCH nurses are a fundamental and influencing partner in the development of all playgroups across our state. 

Supporting families to engage with playgroup

A thriving playgroup platform relies on relationships and partnerships with key stakeholders in the health and community sector. Playgroup Victoria and the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Service partnered to explore the transition process of first time parent groups to community playgroups. As a result of this collaboration, a contemporary range of resources have been developed for nurses to share with new parents. We are continuing to develop new materials to assist all families to access playgroups and understand why it is beneficial to attend.
