Supported Playgroup

Supported Playgroups provide families and children opportunities to learn and grow through play with the support of an early years professional.

  • Increases the quality of your interactions with your children
  • Encourages play in the home
  • Connects you with like-minded parents and local services
  • Supports self-care (stress management and supportive services)

All families with children aged 0 to 5 years are welcome to attend. Each playgroup operate 2 hours per week for 10 weeks (school terms).

The 10-week parenting program smalltalk and in-home support are incorporated into our sessions.

In-Home Support is one on one support provided by a qualified facilitator who comes to your home. Each session goes for 1.5 hours giving parents the opportunity to participate in and interact with their children. You are able to attend a supported playgroup and receive in-home support.
