The State Government has partnered with Playgroup Queensland to offer families with children under 12 months a full year of free playgroup membership.
Education Minister Kate Jones said the PlayStars partnership would give kids the best possible start to their education.
“Playgroups provide children with the opportunity to learn and develop with other children through play,” she said.
“[They] also connect young parents where they can build social networks and share experiences.
“Under our partnership, every family with a child under 12 months can sign up for a free one year family membership with Playgroup Queensland,” the Minister said.
Since the initiative began on 1 July this year, 26 new playgroups have been created and more than 500 families have inquired about starting a new playgroup in their community.
