Playsteps is an 8 week group for you and your child (0-3 years) to learn more ways to increase your bond with your child. In this group you will:
- Meet other families and share parenting experiences
- Get information and understanding about your child’s behaviour, communication and development
- Receive support around parenting and play
Past reflections from families:
“I was a good carer, but didn’t play with him, I was exhausted, annoyed and bored. Now we can’t get enough of each other, we have a good bond playing and being together”
“It was somewhere fun and friendly to go and I always left feeling light hearted and rejuvenated”
“Every week I learnt new things. I’d go home and practice the songs and ideas. My son and I will miss coming”
