KEYS to Play

Play is the main way children learn about the world around them. A facilitated playgroup is fun; helps children learn simple routines and enables them to participate in new experiences.

The KEYS staff model positive communication and behaviour skills with the emphasis on children playing to learn.

The playgroups are an opportunity for parents, grandparents and carers to come together to meet new people and connect to their community in a safe, relaxed and non-threatening environment. Playgroups are one of the first and most effective interactions a new family can have with the community that they move into.

We are also a source of other community information which may be useful to families e.g. upcoming parenting workshops, school starting and enrolment dates, local health services, etc.
