Connect 5 Children's Services

 

Connect Five 

All children deserve the best possible start with regard to learning and developing life skills. Connect Five supports isolated families with young children in their learning and development prior to starting school, particularly those children aged 0 to 5 years who do not have access to other Early Childhood Services such as Pre-school and Childcare.

Connect Five Children's Services run two-hour Mobile Play Sessions (play groups) from 10:00am to 12:00pm for children aged 0-6 years throughout the Warrumbungle, Gilgrandra and Coonamble Shires during school terms. Play sessions are run by dedicated Educators, with sessions held at local preschools, school grounds, church halls, community halls, and community ovals.

COVID Procedures at Play Session Venues

With the further easing of COVID-19 restrictions within NSW, Connect Five are excited to announce mobile play sessions will be back operational from the start of Term 4, 12 October 2020.

We ask for your cooperation and support with the following:-

  • If you or your child are unwell or sick please do not attend the session until you are better.
  • A declaration as to whether you ‘Have travelled to a known hot spot in the last 14 days?’ The check list will need to be completed and signed before entering a venue,
  • Temperature checks will be undertaken upon arrival,
  • Where possible we will be looking at holding most of the play sessions outside to enable adults to social distance correctly.
  • Families will need to book in so we can keep to the allowed 20 at a gathering.
  • In some cases, we are looking for alternative venues. These locations are marked as ‘TBD’ on the Timetable, and we will let you know once finalised.
  • Please monitor your e-mail, Facebook & text messages. Ideally download the School Stream app.
