Inner West Playgroups

  • Mums & Bubs

Playgroup is a fantastic way for babies to develop sensory, social and communication skills through play. It also offers new mums a chance to relax and chat in a warm and welcoming environment and an opportunity to meet other local parents. Sessions are free or low cost and there are playgroups in just about every suburb and for just about every kind of parent, carer and child.

Here is a list of playgroups in the Inner West.
