Lennox House at a glance

Lennox House is a centre that caters for parents and children from birth to five years. Activities offered include playgroup, occasional care, baby and kindy gym and music for toddlers. The activities are designed to involve parents and their children learning together. All activities are prepared and delivered by fully qualified early childhood trained teachers who are supported by a teacher's aide. Throughout the week we run a series of activities for 0 - 5 year olds which include playgroup, Kindy and Baby gym, music for tots and occasional care. Most of these programs are simply drop in programs and we charge only a nominal fee. All Lennox House activities are run during normal school term dates.

Parent Information talks

At least once a term there is a parent/caregiver information session held on a topic that parents/caregivers have identified to be of interest. These sessions are either developed and run by one of our professional staff members, or an outside recognised professional is invited to give a guest lecture. We aim to be responsive to the needs of our parents, and strive to make these sessions as relevant and timely as possible. If you have any suggestions for course you would like to attend, please let us know so we can factor it into our planning. If you would like to come and join in any of the activities provided by Lennox House, please feel free to. On your first visit you will be asked to fill in a registration form and our professional staff will answer any questions you may have.
