Parenting Support Groups

Baw Baw Shire Council provides supported playgroup and parenting groups for parents of young children.

Play Matters Supported Playgroup

This playgroup is supported by a facilitator and provides opportunities for children to experience a range of play options. Families are supported and encouraged to link into other relevant services and supports. This is an initiative funded by the Victorian government that aims to engage families to provide quality play opportunities for children at a critical time in their development.

Attendance at Play Matters is by referral. For information, call 5624 2540 or speak with your Maternal Child Health Nurse.

Circle of Security Program

The Circle of Security program is a free of charge relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. The focus on how parent/child relationships can be strengthened, this unique approach teaches parents new ways to understand their children's needs and behaviour. It also offers effective ways to respond to these needs and behaviours.
