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.

At the start of Term 2, 2019 The JNC invites families in the Randwick local government area to join us in our free JNC playgroups and parenting workshops. (There are some eligibility requirements – please phone us on 9349 8200 with any questions.) 

JNC Playgroups

JNC playgroups are a great place for families to have fun, learn together with their child, and make new social connections.

123 JNC is a free playgroup for families with children aged 0-3 living in the Randwick local government area, at a venue with lots of space, toys and resources. You can have fun with your child, help them learn new skills, meet other local families, and connect with support services. Older siblings can attend too. Join us on Thursdays from 10am-12pm.

Our TRANSITION TO SCHOOL PLAYGROUP is for families with children starting school next year.  It runs on Mondays in school term, from 10am to 11.30am. This is a chance for your child to meet others and develop skills that will make it easier to start school. Younger siblings are also welcome.

Workshops with The JNC

The TRIPLE P POSITIVE PARENTING WORKSHOP SERIES offers the chance to learn ways to build positive relationships with your child. The workshops will be run by an accredited facilitator, who has casework experience working with families and children.

A previous participant said this program was “very educational, [I] have a much better view of parenting”.

Join us on Thursdays 6, 13, 20, 27 June, from 10am-12pm.

MEN WHO FATHER WORKSHOP SERIES For fathers & male carers who want to enhance their relationship with their children and discuss challenges with other men who are also parenting. The facilitator is an experienced community worker and workshop facilitator and father of two young boys. Join us on Tuesdays 11, 18, 25 June, from 5.30pm-7.30pm, at The JNC in Maroubra.

A previous participant said, “This was a great opportunity to sit down with other dads and hear the challenges that they are having. It taught me that we are all going through similar situations and knowing this has made me more confident in my parenting.”
