Parents and carers across Narre Warren South are getting a helping hand in establishing and operating community playgroups, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

The $50,000 Great Start Community Playgroup Fund will help new playgroups cover set-up fees and also stock up on toys, play equipment, books and other resources that can be used by families.

Successful grant recipients will receive resources and mentoring support for their newly established community playgroup, valued at up to $1000.
