About the group

Play to Grow will provide fun and meaningful opportunities for communication between the child and their caregivers as well as information about how to further support communication in everyday life.

The sessions are set up similarly to a community playgroup with the aims of supporting children’s development and wellbeing as well as providing parents with social opportunities and parenting support. The sessions are planned and facilitated by experienced therapists who are able to tailor the activities to meet the specific needs of each client and their family.

This program has been designed in response to frequent feedback from parents about a lack of comfort attending mainstream playgroups and group activities with their children.

Stay and Play allows time for parents to connect and have a cup of tea while baby plays with a range of developmentally appropriate toys. The group also gathers for music time with the Speech Pathologist who guides the families through a range of songs and rhymes. Families are provided with song and rhymes sheets to help them learn the words at home.

These sessions provide a safe environment for parents to connect with other parents of babies and young children recently diagnosed with a disability

Singing and music have many benefits for all children.  Song and rhyme help a baby’s brain make important connections for future learning. They form the foundations for language, literacy and mathematical learning.
