Early Years Program

Supported playgroups that provide opportunities for play, learning and networking.

Supported Multicultural Playgroups

Our supported multicultural playgroups provide opportunities for parents and their children to enhance their relationships, increase their skills and confidence to develop valuable social and family support networks.

Facilitated by one of our experienced Playgroup Leaders during school terms; our groups can also assist parents with parenting information and referrals to other family services.

There are no fees for our sessions, only a gold coin donation and a piece of fruit to share for morning tea; we provide all tea and coffee.
