Research

  • Telethon Kids Institute

    The research from the Telethon Kids Institute, It takes a village to raise a child: The influence and impact of playgroups across Australia, shows that children who attend playgroup are half as likely to have developmental vulnerabilities when they start primary school.  
    The benefits of playgroup are seen  for all domains of child development: physical, social, emotional, language and cognitive development and communication. They also benefit parents who need support networks and advice. Overall, one in three Australian children attend playgroup before they start school. Even in the most disadvantaged communities, one in four children attend playgroups prior to school.   We know that children learn through play. This research shows just how important playgroup can be in facilitating children’s development.
