Supported by all schools, early learning centers, support service providers, sporting clubs, and creative arts studios in the region, the event boasts three hundred volunteers providing entertainment, activities, and information booths. Child health and allied health professionals, schools, early learning centers, and other community groups also participate.We’re reaching out to businesses with direct connections to families with young children, seeking sponsorship to continue offering the event at no cost to families. This is particularly vital to us as we aim to support vulnerable children and increase awareness of the crucial role parents play in providing high-quality environments and interactions for young children, leading to better school readiness and health outcomes.The Australian Early Development Index results for Gympie reveal higher rates of children living with vulnerability compared to Queensland and Australia as a whole, emphasizing the importance of our work.We’d love to discuss how you can support our award-winning event. Let’s chat!

Why the Little Kids Day Out?

The target audience of the event is families with young children across our region. The information booths, activities and performances that are provided are suitable for families with children under the age of eight years old but are of interest to older children as well. The committee plans to have as many support service providers, schools, early learning centres, sporting clubs, creative arts studios and businesses supporting young children involved in the event. Each will distribute information on how they can support families and provide an activity and how they can support families with young children.

The event aims to have, as much as possible, activities that are open ended and can be done at home by parents. Parents participate in activities with their children on the day. Volunteers supervising each activity, will model positive interactions between adults and children in the hope that the parents will replicate these at home. The event aims to aid and encourage increased high-quality parental engagement in their children’s learning and development. Our aim is to also encourage parental uptake in participation of services and resources available in our region. The committee hopes the event will have a positive influence in children’s readiness for school.

HEALTHY PLAY Project

The Healthy Play Project is supported by funding from the Australian Government through the PHN Program. Healthy Play is facilitated by childcare professionals offering parents support with their children aged 0 – 5, and or home schooled children, to navigate Primary Health Care Services and any other informal supports required. Healthy Play will do this by providing the community with mobile playdates/clinics offering non clinical and clinical pre screenings at a variety of settings and locations, and visiting existing activities such as local shopping centres, playgroups, schools, Indigenous spaces, parks, family fun days and places requested by groups of parents.

 The aim of these sessions and appearances is to provide families with easy access to our program and get that support for yourself or your child. There is no cost associated with this program to parents/families. Watch this space grow! Healthy Play staff have extensive experience supporting parents/families/children and very much look forward to meeting with you.

 You can contact 0497 159 254 for child related enquires and/or screenings and information, by phoning or texting, or by email projects@gcp.org.au. For parenting and family wellbeing enquires, please contact our Family Support Worker on 0413 365 689 or by email hp@gcp.org.au
