Parents Staying Connected

Parents Staying Connected (PSC) is a group program for parents offering play and learn sessions with their children (under 5) and a parents-only session for parents with school age children under 12. Both groups are designed to create connections; to their children, other parents and the community by increasing the self-confidence and overall wellbeing of parents and children in a fun and inclusive way.

The “Play and Learn” session is on Mondays between 10.30am and 12.30pm and the parents-only “Hanging at the House” session is on Thursdays between 12.30pm and 2.30pm, both sessions are held at Chigwell House, a quaint 1860 farmhouse located at 2b Myella Drive in Berriedale.
