Our community playgroups are run by volunteer committees who dedicate their time to ensure their local playgroup thrives. Without them and other parents and carers who volunteer, these groups would not exist. Our hard-working Board of Directors are also all volunteers.
The coordinator of one local community playgroup said, “My child is nearly at school now and I enjoy encouraging new parents to attend and have them see the benefits both they and their children gain by the playgroup experience.”
Top five reasons our community playgroup members say they enjoy their volunteer role:
- Giving back to playgroup
- Helping children and families
- Control over direction of their playgroup
- Giving back to the community
If you want to assist your community playgroup as a committee member or in another capacity, speak with a committee member at your group.
Following are the stories about some of our volunteers whose work has made a substantial difference to their playgroup and/or the greater playgroup movement.
