It Takes a Village (ITAV) Play2Learn

It Takes A Village Play2Learn provides newly arrived humanitarian families with children aged 0–5 years, the opportunity to support their children to build social skills through play, positive role modelling and education. The program provides a safe and supportive environment where parents can learn about parenting in the Australian context. The group is held in a primary school, providing both parents and children with the opportunity to become familiar with the Australian school system. Families are supported to attend main stream early childhood programs and gain support in their transition to school. The program utilises a bicultural worker and interpreter services.

The program is delivered every Friday from 11.00am to 1.00pm at Glenorchy Primary School.
