Our Program and Approach
Inner Newcastle provides a Supported Playgroup Program. Our weekly Play-Based Early Learning session offers a wide range of learning experiences that are specifically designed to encourage development in all areas.
We offer opportunities for you and your child to meet and chat with other families and to share your experiences and knowledge within a safe and friendly environment.
Our staff are qualified early childhood educators and provide a program that is challenging and interesting for your child. In our playgroup sessions, staff provide oral and written information on child development, local community services, child health and other topics of interest to families.
We work in partnership with Multicultural Neighbourhood Centre, Northern Settlement Services along with Mission Australia to assist families where needed.
