It Takes a Village Multicultural Supported Play Scheme
The 'It Takes a Village' multicultural supported play scheme assists newly arrived migrant families with children 0 to 5 to transition into the Australian education system and provides support to isolated parents and families.
We run weekly sessions for children under five years to help them learn to play, socialise and establish routine in their lives. The sessions consider culture and language, and make sure all children and parents feel welcome.
Bilingual early childhood educators offer parents advice, referrals to community services and connect them with other families. Snacks are provided at the playgroups to promote healthy eating habits.
Who this service is for
Newly arrived migrant families with children 0 to 5.
Fridays during school terms. 11:00-1:00.
How this service is delivered
The Play scheme runs out of Glenorchy Primary School.
