MyTime is for parents and carers of a child (aged 0-16 years) with a disability, chronic medical condition or other additional needs including developmental delay. Unwind, meet new people and share experiences with others who understand.
MyTime is funded by The Department of Social Services (DSS) and is provided in partnership with the Parenting Research Centre, Playgroup NSW, Interchange Illawarra, TAFE Illawarra and Big Fat Smile.
This program is about assisting families who care for children 0-16 years of age to develop social networks, enjoy some time out and provide children who have additional needs and chronic illness an opportunity to socialise with other children.
The supported playgroup initiative is the only one of its kind Australia wide where TAFE Child Care students have a practical opportunity to work with, and better understand, children with disabilities in a social learning environment for the child and siblings. Over the years many of the Early Childhood Education students have developed a passion for supporting children with a disability and now work in the disability sector.
