Integricare Supported Playgroups Northern Sydney

Integricare Supported Playgroups Northern Sydney is funded by Families NSW.  It is a project that provides free supported playgroups in the areas of Northern Beaches, Lower North Shore, Ryde/Hunters Hill and Hornsby/Ku-ring-gai to parents and carers raising children up to school age.  The service targets families who have difficulty accessing mainstream community playgroups.

We place an emphasis on the importance of play in a child's development, while building on the concept of positive parenting.  The parenting needs of mothers, fathers and carers can also be addressed as well as building friendships and informal links within the community.

We Offer Families:

  • Access to information about their local community and parenting services.
  • Information and support around parenting.
  • Developmentally appropriate learning environment.
  • Modelling of positive behaviour management techniques.
  • Modelling of play interactions, communication skills and learning experiences.
  • Early identification of developmental issues and appropriate follow up.
  • Improve the use of local services by providing practical assistance to accessing identified services.
