Play With Your Kids (PWYK) is a program managed by the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre and funded by the Department of Education, Training and Employment. Qualified staff work together to provide you and your children with opportunities to learn through play in a safe and supportive environment.

The objectives of the program are:

  • To work in partnership with parents by facilitating playgroups that provide a variety of play experiences and activities that support the physical, emotional and social development of children from birth to prep.
  • To provide parenting information and support to parents on a variety of issues and needs.
  • Foster opportunities for parents to  develop valuable social networks with other families

PWYK is part of the Child and Family HUB Service for the Fraser Coast. The program offers a large variety of family services, including parenting and child health support. Staff can also refer to other community services when needed.
