We believe every child deserves the right to play!

Play and Learn Supported (PALS) Playgroups are all ability groups, delivering play-based activities that support cultural identity, and include creative arts, sports, and recreation. PALS Playgroups are co-designed for families of children aged 0–5, with and without disabilities. PALS are supported by existing community service partnerships to deliver playgroup activities that bring children and families of all abilities together to connect, build awareness and foster inclusive communities. We provide a safe, welcoming, adaptable environment where families of all abilities feel comfortable connecting and coming together. Scroll down to register for a session near you!
