The Australian Institute of Family Studies has released a suite of resources to help in the development of high-quality and consistent playgroups, and further build and strengthen the evidence base for the effectiveness of playgroups in meeting outcomes for families and children.

The resources are designed to provide flexible support and guidance to policy makers and those planning, delivering and coordinating playgroups. They provide an evidence-informed framework with which playgroups can be developed based on the local needs of the families attending and the communities they live in, and further allow a consistent evaluation approach where appropriate. The resources are not affiliated with any funding process and are not intended to replace existing frameworks or guiding documents, but rather to complement them.
