Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
A list of playgroups registered with Playgroup WA in the Perth Metropolitan area will be obtained.

Playgroups will be randomly selected to participate in the study using a random sampling method. Playgroups will then be randomly allocated to ether the control or intervention group using central randomisation by computer. In total, 450 mothers from playgroups will be selected to the intervention group and 450 mothers from playgroups will comprise the control group.
