Who It's For

The group is for single parents and carers who have minimal contact with their children and are hoping to transition to independent parenting.

How We Help

Through this fortnightly group, you’ll learn and practice key skills to understand and support your child's needs, apply them during visits, and strengthen the connection with your child.

What to Expect

Parents and carers meet with a facilitator to discuss suitability and must complete an approved parenting course before attending. If suitable, you'll build skills over the coming weeks to enhance parenting and build closer relationships.


Held fortnightly on Saturday mornings (excluding public holidays).


This playgroup is free.

Delivery Options

This program is available in person to those in the Doonside, NSW area.

Providing a safe play space for you to connect to your child
Offering parental education within our Circle of Security program with trained facilitators
Helping you recognise your child's needs and support their development and wellbeing
Providing referrals to other appropriate agencies
