Mina Mura - Dreamtime Kids' Playgroup
About This Program
The Locational Supported Playgroup for Indigenous families aims to provide culturally sensitive support to families and assist them to develop the skills and confidence to play with their children and develop strong parenting skills.
How We Work / Who Can Use This Program
The current funding agreement provide for two playgroup sessions per week, with a maximum of 6 families and 10 children attending each session.
The Playgroup employs the services of a trained Early Childhood worker who develops programs and organises activities in conjunction with families designed to meet the needs of the children attending. The program also employs caseworkers who provide follow up support and referrals to appropriate agencies according to the needs of families.
