Bring a Senior to Playgroup Week 2021

Bring a Senior to Playgroup Week (8th – 14th November) is Playgroup WA’s annual celebration of the important role seniors play in our families and communities.

While we know many grandparents and other special seniors already attend playgroup, it’s time to celebrate the many wonderful ways seniors inspire, nurture and play!

What can playgroups do?

During this week we want playgroups to reach out and interact with the seniors in their community. You can do this by inviting seniors along to your playgroup for some great fun and excitement or why not have an excursion to local seniors centre or aged care facility.

Register your event and your playgroup could win!

All playgroups who registered their event had a chance to win some fun prizes for their playgroup. More details below.

Congratulations to the following playgroups who won:

1st Place: Gingin Playgroup
2nd Place: Parkerville Playgroup
3rd Place: Baldivis Playgroup

If your playgroup is keen to get involved but not sure what to do here are some fun ideas:
  • Host a morning tea
  • Have a barbecue or sausage sizzle
  • Enjoy an outdoors picnic
  • Ask the children to put on an artwork display – they can colour in or paint the pictures from the resource pack (below) or could even do paintings of some of their favourite things to do with their significant senior in their life
  • Invite seniors for a story sharing session at playgroup or involve them in your playgroup story time
  • For those wanting to organise an excursion to the local seniors centre or aged care facility, call to speak to them directly to discuss what can be arranged

Registrations have now closed. If you have registered your event, you will receive Thank You cards for seniors attending the event, a small contribution towards morning teaand Playgroup WA items for the event. For details on the competition please scroll down below.
