According to www.playgroupaustralia.com.au/wa/go/our-services/benefits-of-playgroup...

"Playgroup is for you to:

  • play and learn together 
  • meet other parents/caregivers to share ideas, information and experiences 
  • develop new friendships 
  • create a support network with other playgroup members 
  • become part of your local community 
  • have fun together

Your children will:

  • have fun
  • play with and among other children
  • participate in new play experiences
  • respond to other adults
  • make local friends
  • learn simple rules and routines
  • learn more about their world
  • increase their social and communication skills

Play is the key way children learn about the world they live in. They can try out ideas, practise skills, develop structures and rules and play as many different roles as their imagination will allow. Playgroups provide an ideal environment for fostering children’s development through play.”
