The early years of parenting can feel like one, long, sleepless night…

Parents and carers face all kinds of challenges, and the right kind of support is crucial.

That’s why South Eastern Community Connect (SECC) runs a range of Supported Playgroups and parenting programs to help you enjoy the early years rather than survive them.

Our playgroups include a mix of free play, music and stories, as well as a shared morning tea.

All babies and children (0-5) are also welcome. Our Supported Playgroups are held in Zetland, Mascot, Kensington and Eastlakes throughout the week.

Where? Book in here via Eventbrite to reserve your place, as spots fill up fast.

When? Usually from 10.00am to 11.30am

How much: Usually around $3

The SECC Community Van has been made possible because of the generous support of Be Kind Sydney, Rotary Maroubra and Clovelly Community Bank.
