Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council


What is a playgroup?

Playgroups provide parents and caregivers with the opportunity to meet new people, gain support and exchange parenting ideas. They allow babies, toddlers and preschools to socialise as they play and learn together.

All playgroups are different but the emphasis is on fun and friendship.

The Glenelg Shire Council supports many parent-run playgroups

Council's Parent Support and Child Development Officer will keep in touch with playgroup leaders to help new families join groups.
