Looking forward to school

JNC’s Transition to School playgroup is for families with children starting school in 2022. Your child can build confidence and skills, meet other local children and learn the basics of handwriting, numbers and literacy, and how to listen, share and follow instructions.

Mondays in school term at Hope Uniting Church, 829 Anzac Parade, Maroubra, 10-11.30am.

Feeling better about anxiety

‘Small Steps’ is a seminar that will help you understand anxiety in children: what’s ‘normal’, what kinds of anxiety disorders can affect children, and how to read the signs. Tuesday, May 11 from 10-11.30am in Daceyville. Hear from the experts and find out how anxious children can be supported.
