The Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development‟s (DEECD) mission is to ensure a high-quality and coherent birth to adulthood learning and development system to build the capacity of every young Victorian. DEECD‟s Programs and Partnerships Division within its Early Childhood and Development Group has responsibility for programs supporting the health, development and learning of Victoria‟s young children, including kindergarten, maternal and child health, early childhood intervention services, inclusion supports, support for Best Start partnerships, Aboriginal early childhood programs, capital funding for children‟s centres, and the Victorian Supported Playgroups and Parent Groups Initiative. It undertakes this role in partnership with the nine DEECD regions across Victoria, local governments, service provider organisations and other key stakeholders.
The division commissioned Urbis to undertake an evaluation of the impact and outcomes of the Supported Playgroups and Parent Groups Initiative (SPPI). Through the evaluation, DEECD sought to determine the impact of supported playgroups on: - parents' social networking and supports
It was also hoped that the evaluation findings were to contribute to the evidence base for supported playgroups.
