The Broadmeadows SDS Playgroup is led by a Special Education teacher and meets on Friday mornings for a 1 ½ hour session in the music room at the Dimboola Road campus. The focus of the session is encouraging communication through music and movement. Parents and carers attend the group with their pre-school aged children, and Early Intervention teachers and therapists are also welcome. Children still on the waiting list for Early Intervention are also welcome to attend the playgroup.

PECS, Boardmaker and Key Word Sign language are used and take home information sheets, song sheets etc. are available for families.

The playgroup provides a great experience for children, particularly in the year before starting at the school. Teachers and therapists are able to observe the children at playgroup, meet families and discuss programs for the following year. The children become very familiar with the school layout, playground and staff; leading to a very positive transition to school.
