JNC Family Programs

Family programs during COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been offering support for families via our webcasts and through online support groups, playgroups and other ways to contribute positively to your child’s development.

We offer a transition to school playgroup on Monday mornings at 10pm, for families with children starting school next year. Come along for school readiness skills and storytime. At present this is online, on Facebook live – see our Facebook page – and may be run face to face by term 4, depending on what’s best for the community’s health at that time. Please contact Dan on 9349 8200 asap to register your interest so we can make decisions about where to run the group.

And our Mindfulness for Positive Child Development course is running online on Tuesdays – 20 and 27 October and 3 November – at 10am, on Zoom. Phone Dan or Angie on 9349 8200 to register.

Here are some fun activities you can do with the whole family at any time.

This webcast helps you and your family understand about COVID-19
