ACT Playgroups Early Intervention Playgroups

Our early intervention playgroups address the unique needs of each individual child as well as providing parents with the tools and strategies to help their child reach their full potential.

ACT Playgroups Early Intervention Playgroups are run by highly qualified staff in partnership with Tuggeranong and Gungahlin Child and Family Centre, Therapy ACT and Giralang AIU.

These playgroups are designed to support the journey of families with young children with additional needs.
Our early intervention playgroups for children 0-5 years are free, fun, interactive, evidence based and accessible to all. All family members including siblings and other carers are encouraged to attend.

These playgroups not only provide important play-based skills development and socialisation opportunities for young children with additional needs, but also offer peer and parenting support for the adults attending.
