 Parallel Learning Playgroups

 

AVWA is running 6 extremely popular playgroups in Richmond, Collingwood, Footscray, Sunshine and St. Albans and Delahay. Our Parallel Learning Playgroups, funded by the Department of Social Services and other funding bodies, present a bilingual program to strengthen family relationships while addressing educational disadvantages by supporting Vietnamese families in low socio-economic suburbs. Reading and speaking skills in both English & Vietnamese are fostered through participation in singing, reading, bilingual story telling, playing games, dancing and other structured activities in a playgroup setting. Australian and Vietnamese volunteers led by qualified staff help ensure children reach a high level of bilingualism and smoothly transition to kindergarten and primary schools while their mothers learn to socialise and practice their English language skills in a supportive setting.
