Community HUBS & Playgroups


HUBITAT : Lower Mountains Community Hub

​A community HUB focuses on the well-being of children, family and their community. 

The Lower Mountains Hub is  school centred, where the school becomes a place for families and the community, to hear about and connect with other services, join in activities, make new friends and have fun!

The Hub is for everyone, whether you are a family with young children and babies, or you are a parent to be.


At the Hub:

- Join in the fun at our 0-5's Play and Chat Groups (see play and chat for details)

-  Get information and talk to local services about your children's growth, development and behaviour

​- Join other parents and carers at a variety of parenting courses and community celebrations.


What's in it for families, the school and community?

- Children thrive when home, school and  the community work together from birth

- The Hub activities build on the important role of parent and child relationships

- meet and get to know other families in the area too

- learn about what services are out there for your family's needs

- Children's transition to school would be easier when families are already linked into the school and other services.
