Horsham playgroup continues online

Horsham Playgroup has taken its supported sessions online in response to COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing.

A new Horsham Rural City Council Virtual Playground has started and offers families an opportunity to connect with others safely in an online environment. 

People can join sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10.30am by tuning into a HRCC Playgroups Facebook page.

Community wellbeing director Kevin O’Brien said he expected many families to join the sessions.

“It is exciting the council is able to offer a virtual playgroup, providing an opportunity for families to connect online,” he said.

“This is so important in these times where we all need to be at home. 

“This program will help overcome isolation and provide families with the support they need.”

The sessions are free of charge and offer home play and learning opportunities including stories, activities and songs. The council has distributed support packs to participating families.
