  Crayola and Playgroup NSW have a long standing partnership that benefits both organisations.

This support enables thousands of toddlers and pre-schoolers who attend our playgroups and the many special events we hold throughout the year to actively engage with these iconic, quality educational products.  

 


Kinderling Kids Radio is Playgroup NSW’s inaugural media partner.  A free 24/7 radio station for parents and young children, Kinderling is available on digital radio, online and via a free app,  We share a commitment to strengthening child and family wellbeing, supporting parents and very importantly—having fun!  Through this partnership, established in 2016, via our website and social media, Playgroup NSW  shares Kinderling interviews and editorial about advice on kids, health and relationships.  Kinderling provides Playgroup NSW  with valuable on-air exposure. 

 

Playgroup NSW and LEGO® DUPLO® are both committed to supporting learning through play. In 2016 they teamed up to help playgroups affiliated with Playgroup NSW discover learning through play with DUPLO bricks. This initiative provides playgroups with DUPLO bricks and encourages them to discover, create and use social media to share their creations and create engagement. LEGO was also a major sponsor of Playgroup NSW's National Playgroup Week signature event, World's Biggest Playgroup Day.


 

In 2017, Merlin Entertainments Group partnered with Playgroup NSW  to offer our members a special 20% discount to Merlin’s NSW attractions: SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, Madame Tussauds, Sydney Tower Eye, Manly Sea Life Sanctuary and Illawara Fly.  These attractions encourage children to discover, learn and have fun in interactive, entertaining and safe environments.
