Feel supported with smalltalk

Published on 05 April 2023


Are you the proud parent of a child up to five years? Do you hold a Health Care Card?
Every week per term, you can take advantage of our free smalltalk Supported Playgroup sessions!
You and your child have the right to accessible learning and development. Through smalltalk, you can enjoy a safe and stimulating space to learn and grow.
Our smalltalk Supported Playgroup is just as it is described: a supportive playgroup where both parent and child can develop. This may range from something as simple as family connection, to increasing a parent’s confidence and discovering everyday opportunities for child development.
These weekly sessions are open to children, parents and families of all abilities.
We also accept referrals from Enhanced Maternal, Child Health Services, families engaged with NDIS and Orange Door.
Eligible families can also take up our in-home sessions, which are one-on-one sessions at your home (or another suitable location) to practice smalltalk strategies. This service is also free. 
If this something right up your alley, sign up today: mornpen.vic.gov.au/supportedplaygroups
