Our free Supported Playgroup at Mikarie Child Care Centre offers children aged 0-5 who may not be meeting their developmental milestones, and their families, an exciting and inclusive environment.

The weekly playgroup provides access to early childhood educators and therapists in a stimulating setting with play-based activities. It gives each child and their family the opportunity to enhance their relationship, increase their skills and confidence, and develop valuable social support networks.

Each week, your child and you will enjoy:

  • Fun and engaging play-based ideas you can use in your own home.
  • Access to Early Childhood Educators and our Clinical Services team.
  • Morning tea / picnic time.
  • Making new friends.
  • Helpful techniques and resources.
