Parent Connect

Caring for young children takes lots of time and energy. Sometimes a chance to chat and have a cup of tea can be just the thing you need. Our Parent Connect program offers just that – come and join us for an hour, a cup of tea or coffee and an opportunity to connect with Janina and other parents and caregivers while our educators support your children in their play. This is a drop-in program.

Ages: 0-6
Tuesdays 9:30am - 11:00am at EarlyOn at Viola Desmond Public School, 1450 Leger Way, North Entrance.
