UnitingCare Burnside is responsible for running supported playgroups. These programs work with children under five years of age, whose families do not already access early childhood services. The supported playgroups provide an opportunity for parents with children to get together for a few hours of activities and access information that connects them to other available services and resources.
Playgroups across the state cater for families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Indigenous backgrounds or families from a particular neighbourhood.
Supported playgroups are run primarily by UnitingCare Burnside. For more information on the services on offer and their locations, please visit the Burnside website at www.burnside.org.au.
