Canberra Playgroup

The ACT Rainbow Families Playgroup is an informal session where LGBTQIA+ parents, carers, babies and children aged 0 to school age come together in a relaxed and friendly environment. We offer a wide range of play equipment, with lots of free time inside and outside so the children can explore and make friends in a fun, safe way. 

Come along to Cook (ACT playgroup headquarters) and join us for some fun for your child (and adult chats for parents)! 9:30am -11:30am each Wednesday during term 1.

The space we use has self-directed play, garden, cubby, sandpit, things to make and imagine together and SO many inside and outside activities. All ages and LGBTQIA+ families that live, work or play in the ACT welcome.

Cost of playgroup is $4 per family each week.
