The Playgroup program has strengthened relationships between parents and children and increased the social networks of isolated and marginalised ASB families. The group offers ASB families a safe environment for them and their children to meet and participate in the pre-school experience, as well as to bond as a family and with other families. The group meets once a week, and the families participate in a social outing at the end of each school term.
