Playgroup Queensland is able to provide quality services to families with the help of Playgroup Volunteers. Without our dedicated Playgroup volunteers, we would not be able to run over 1,000 Playgroup sessions each week across Queensland.

Playgroup Queensland has over 1,600 volunteers and staff who have been connected to the company for a large part of its life span. Volunteering benefits not just the families who attend Playgroup, but also strengthens the local community.
