Face-to-face playgroups are returning from Monday, 13 July 2020

We’re excited to announce face-to-face playgroup sessions are returning next week! What does this mean for you? From Monday, 13 July, you can return to playgroups or programs that have submitted a COVID-Safe Plan to recommence gatherings.

To find out if your playgroup is ready to welcome you back, please follow-up with your contact person (contact information available via Find a Playgroup) or email the Playgroup Queensland team at membership@playgroupqld.com.au. All groups that have submitted a COVID-Safe Plan have been provided with a range of support resources, posters and tip sheets to make the return to playgroup as easy as possible. Please understand that in some circumstances, our playgroups may remain on hold due to increased health risks or restricted venue access.

The most important consideration for us during this time is the health and safety of our community – our playgroup families, our employees, and our valued partners. It is a requirement that you provide your contact details at each playgroup session for attendance and contract tracing purposes, in line with government requirements. If you, your child or anyone in your family/household has travelled overseas in the last 14 days, is being tested for COVID-19 and awaiting results or is currently unwell, stay home and avoid visiting playgroup.

If your playgroup remains closed or you are not in a position to return to face-to-face gatherings, you can continue to connect with our online community through our Playgroup at Home Facebook group or visit our Playgroup at Home webpage for activities and resources.

Thank you for your patience and support during this time. Playgroup is going to be different for a while, and we ask that you continue to be patient as we navigate this journey together. Many hands make light work, and we ask that you please do what you can to help support your playgroup during this time.

For any further information, please contact Playgroup Queensland on 1800 171 882 or email membership@playgroupqld.com.au.

We look forward to seeing you in person again soon!
