Setup for Success

Get Setup for Success with the St Mary’s College milangkani program!

The College offers an encouraging and nurturing environment for parents and carers to actively participate with their children in learning opportunities. A variety of play-based educational activities will engage your child’s learning and curiosity in all areas of development.

All families in the greater community with children aged between birth and five years old are warmly welcome to attend.

Setup for Success is a free program.

Sessions are run by early-childhood teacher, Meg Kitchen, and are focused on empowering parents and carers to support their children’s development. Meg has over 13 years of teaching experience and is Class Teacher of Kinder Koalas. She is looking forward to meeting you!
