Help with your Child's Development

How can we help with my child’s development?

We know how precious each child is and we want to help both parents and children get the most out of family life. Some children need extra help to grow and flourish and we are here to help.

Our team of specialised staff are able to help if your child is having problems with:

  • talking
  • walking
  • reading
  • keeping up with other kids
  • understanding how to do and learn new things
  • shyness or trouble playing with other kids
  • any other issue which mum, dad, grandma or the kinder teacher is worried about.

We also care for children with autism or other delays in their normal development. We can provide more specialised help and care for your child at home, at the kinder, at day-care or at our centre.

Supported playgroups

We have the fun factor covered too, through our supported playgroups. These playgroups are for families who are new to the area and may not know many people, or just need to find some playmates close to home. The groups meet weekly and allow big (5 year olds) and small (1 year olds) children to get together, have some fun and make new friends. Our team are on hand to advise about play activities, normal child development and more.

‘There’s a short window of opportunity for helping pre-school children so let’s grab it with both hands!’
