Children and Families Programs

MOCS works with families to enhance their confidence and skills as caregivers. We support the strengthening of family connections so that children thrive and feel a sense of belonging.

Description

Supported Playgroups: an opportunity to play, learn and connect.

We provide a structured and positive learning environment for children and carers. Our aim to support you to meet other parents/carers and children, and together, increase skills, confidence and a sense of belonging. We provide fun and creative opportunities to learn through play and connection.

Duration

Three days a week during the school term.

You are not alone! Come and learn from your peers and experienced workers.

Having or caring for a child for the first time can be isolating and overwhelming, as well as wonderful and amazing. We aim to provide an opportunity for you to meet others who are also new at this and to be supported by an experienced worker who gives you relevant information and referrals.

Duration

Fortnightly on Wednesdays
