Families Together courses and workshops are fun and creative.
Run in our centres, these inexpensive short workshops give you, the parent, carer or grandparent and your child the opportunity to try out and enjoy something new. Meet other families and make new friends in a relaxed learning environment. A perfect activity for you and your child to do, particularly during school holidays.
