The JNC acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work, the Gadigal and Bidjigal People of the Eora Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that these lands always were and always will be Aboriginal lands. We celebrate First Nations Peoples’ connection to the land and recognise the importance of Indigenous voices and culture. We would like to advise that there may be images or videos on this website of people who have since passed.

FREE Parenting Programs: Jul – Dec 2015

Through the South Randwick Community Hub Partnership, JNC Family Programs is excited to offer a range of practical and useful FREE parenting programs in the local area. All parents and carers are welcome. If you’re a Dad, Grandad or in male parenting role make sure you check out Baby Shed which starts Saturday 11th July!!

So what types of courses can you attend? Here is a condensed list to give you an idea:

  • BABY SHED^: a hands on workshop for dads, grandparents and men who care for babies. It runs for 2 hours on a Saturday morning for three weeks and will assist men with practical information including feeding, sleeping and settling, infant communication and play as well as the challenges of being in a father role.
  • LANGUAGE & DEVELOPMENT* – Bilingualism. Are you wondering whether to raise your child bilingual? Come join us and hear Speech Pathologists talk about the benefits of raising a bilingual child. You will also learn about various strategies to support your child’s bilingualism.
  • MUSIC & MOVEMENT* – a four week interactive group for 2-6 year old children and their parents to enhance coordination, creativity, imagination and language skills through music.
  • FIRST AID & CPR FOR PARENTS* – a one-off information session that will involve a discussion and demonstration of Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and handling choking, drowning, accidental ingestions, sunburn, burns, scalds, bites and stings.
