ASeTTS Children's Services
Friday Village meets almost every Friday morning from 9.30 - 11.30am. We encourage parents to play with their children by providing a friendly and playful environment as well as play resources. Sometimes the group goes on excursions to relevant services or other play environments (e.g. park for picnics, baby pool, children's library).
Members of the group are from many different cultural backgrounds and speak varying degrees of English. You do not need to know English to be a part of this group, but you need to be willing to play!
- To strengthen attachment between parent and child through play
- To reduce isolation for parents and children
- To increase the understanding of the value of play
- To provide information about parenting and other services
