How Playgroup Is Run

Our playgroup is a parent run organisation and as such we encourage parents and caregivers to participate in their child's skill development. Parents and caregivers are responsible for the organisation of sessions - setting up activities, supervising children, tidying up at the end of sessions etc. Volunteer supervisors oversee the general running of groups and assist with session organisation. The playgroup Committee, comprised of volunteer parents, manage the playgroup on an administrative level. Parents are encouraged to participate in the running of playgroup by being an active member during sessions, volunteering as a supervisor, and/or joining the Committee.
