Parenting and Skill development

Stay connected through our playgroups.

Help your child to thrive while getting the support you need.


Support for children and parents.

Connect with other parents and experienced support workers to learn and develop parenting skills and confidence to support your child’s wellbeing and development.

Young Parents Supported Playgroup

Supported Playgroups are for parents aged up to 26 years old with children aged 0-5 years old. Referrals from other support services are accepted. We collaborate with other organisations in both assessment and intervention stages. As part of the early intervention model, we include support information and referrals for all family members.

Smalltalk Supported Playgroup

This supported playgroup provides a safe space for parents wanting to connect and bond with their children utilising the Smalltalk program model.

This program provides parents with the confidence they need to play and interact with their children, while providing support for referral to community services. Sessions are welcoming and inclusive, and every family’s background, experiences and cultural identities are valued.

Facilitators partner with parents to set individual goals, with the aim that once these goals have been comfortably achieved, families will transition to community playgroups or other community services.

Available in Coburg and Heidelberg West. Please contact us at 03 9480 6800 for more information.
