MyTime is a program funded by the Australian Government to support parents and carers of children aged 0-18 years with a chronic medical condition, disability or developmental delay. Groups generally meet once a fortnight during the school term for a coffee and chat, to listen to a guest speaker or to enjoy the occasional ‘pamper’ session. A facilitator supports the group by arranging guest speakers and activities, providing information about relevant services, and supporting families as required. Children up to school age can attend and a Play Helper helps with their care. The program is free and more information can be accessed at www.mytime.net.au.
The Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY) is a two-year, home-based early childhood learning and parenting program that empowers parents and carers as their child’s first teacher.

At Playgroup Queensland we know the value of drawing and colouring when it comes to developing a child’s ‘skills’ palette. Every time a child adds a splash of colour to a piece of paper or draws a stick-finger family, they are taking their first step in developing their fine motor and cognitive skills, imagination, and focus … just to name some. But, parents everywhere know that while this creativity is delightful on the right surface, if they turn away for just a minute, it can end up dramatically presented in places not intended to be a permanent art display!
