Playgroup Queensland

by Sally Foster (follow)
Playgroup is a great opportunity socialise with other parents in your local area.

A topic that comes up constantly in discussions on Brisbane Mums Group, is how to meet other mums. Mum friends are so important for your sanity and emotional wellbeing, and having friends who are experiencing what you are experiencing is invaluable.

It's not always easy to find friends in your local area, especially when routines and life circumstances continually change. I find that the older my son gets (he is now a toddler), the more difficult it is to have a coffee shop catch up. At this stage, it's important to look for venues that have a space for the kids to run around, while also giving you the chance to socialise.

Playgroup Queensland is a useful website, which helps you find a playgroup in your local area. You just put in your address and what days you are looking for, and the search function filters playgroups by distance from you.

The Asian Street Food tour of Brisbane will introduce you to a variety of delicious Asian food, including Chinese, Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese and Filipino.

Most playgroups are attached to a community centre, school or a church. There is usually a safe play area for the kids, and the cost is either free or very low with a gold coin donation or up to $10 a week.

The website lists a contact person for the group to ask questions, what ages the group is appropriate for, availability and a bit more information about the group.

Some groups will also offer morning tea and coffee, a playground, or be for a specific group in the community, such as grandparents or a particular cultural background.


You can also become a member of Playgroup Queensland to have access to playgroups across Queensland as well as play activities and online resources, toy library membership and access to competitions, special offers and free events. Membership starts from just $25 for six months.

Playgroup is a great opportunity for you to socialise with parents in your local area and perhaps make some lifelong lasting friendships. As most groups meet weekly, you can get to know some familiar faces. It also gives your kids a chance to make friends and play with some new toys and equipment in a new environment.
