Broome Family and Youth Hub – Parenting Program

The Indigenous Early Learning and Parenting Group offers a supported playgroup for children that is based on the principles of ‘Belonging, Being and Becoming – The Early Years Learning Framework.’ It’s run by an early years learning facilitator and two play helpers. Staff support healthy early childhood development and school readiness and developing parents’ awareness that they are their child’s first teacher. They create a safe and non-confrontational setting for families to build peer support networks and engage in relevant workshops and activities. A range of other local community organisations are involved in running sessions with the group. While the group is based at the Drop in Centre, they go on regular outings.
