Playgroups provide parents and carers with the opportunity to meet new people, gain support and exchange parenting ideas. They allow babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to socialise as they play and learn together. All playgroups are different but the emphasis is on fun and friendship.
A number of playgroups are operated by community groups within the Shire. We also run Supported Playgroup facilitated by West Wimmera Shire Council.
