Ellenbrook Multicultural Playgroup
Under this program Playgroup WA facilitates a playgroup a multicultural playgroup in Malvern Springs, Ellenbrook.
Playgroup sessions support a wide range of different cultures and language groups including African, Chinese, Japanese, Croatian, Spanish, Greek, Arabic as well as Australian-born families.
The playgroup is a welcome and inclusive place where families and children can meet other local families to play, socialise, share and learn about their local area. In 2016 the program added an additional intergenerational dimension with regular visits from local seniors who come to enjoy spending time with the families and children.
Funding for the playgroup is provided through the Swan Alliance – made up of Mission Australia, Ngala and Anglicare. Communities for Children is funded by the Department of Social Services.
