Supported Playgroups

Supported playgroups are a safe place for families to socialise and interact with children from 0-6 years of age. The sessions are structured and facilitated by a trained worker using the Smalltalk program.

Supported Playgroups offer support and strategies to build parents skills and confidence to promote their children’s wellbeing and learning.
