PlayConnect+ groups are open to all children with disability and/or developmental concerns aged 0-8 years and their families. (Great news! A diagnosis is not necessary).



The PlayConnect+ program is FREE and includes:

  • Face-to-face weekly, one and a half to two-hour supported playgroups.*

  • Face-to-face weekly, one and a half to two-hour supported playgroups* in regional/rural/remote areas prioritizing First Nations children and families. 

  • Face-to-face, two-hour music groups facilitated by a tertiary qualified Music Therapist.

  • Online playgroups (for regional/rural/remote families and those who cannot attend a face-to-face group).

  • Online and face-to-face school holiday sessions for children 5-8 years providing peer support and access to creative arts.

  • Facilitation of transitions to other educational settings to support school readiness.

  • Holistic family support including information and advice about other disability support services that we have established partnerships with.

*Playgroups will run during term-times for a total of 40 weeks each year.
