The Chinese Family Program delivers weekly playgroup sessions for Chinese speaking families living and/or working in the City of Monash.

The volunteer role provides support and assistance to the playgroup parents in the delivery of the age appropriate playgroup activities. The playgroup activities are catered for the specific needs of preschoolers aged 0-5 years old, involving art/craft, storytelling, singing in Mandarin and other multi-linguistic language environment.
