Activities for young children

Playgroup

Overview

 

 

 

Playgroups

Play groups provide a stimulating environment where

  • children are encouraged to learn through play
  • children socialise in a community facility
  • families connect with other families
  • parents get support from other parents

All playgroups are different but the emphasis is on enjoyment and friendship. All you need is a couple of friends and a place to meet.

The Torquay Children's Services Hub in Grossmans Road (5261 0549 or torquaychildrenshub@surfcoast.vic.gov.au) and the Surf Coast Sport & Recreation Centre on Beach Road (5261 4606 or email surfcoastsrc@surfcoast.vic.gov.au) both have facilities & space suitable for playgroups, so contact them if you are looking for a space to meet.
