Given the unfolding situation relating to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Australia and across the world, here at the City of Charles Sturt we want to be proactive and clear about how we can stay healthy and are making changes to the way we do things. Each day we will provide updates to the services and events that are impacted along with the latest information and recommendations from WHO, SA Health and the Government.

Pre-school aged (0-5 years)

We have some exciting new developments for our pre-school programs this upcoming term. Whilst we still are unable to physically host our sessions from the branches, we will continue our live sessions on Zoom, and start to stream those sessions to selected Libraries and Community Centres.

This new format means you can choose to watch at home, or join and interact with other parents and families at these locations whilst we project our live Zoom session to everyone. We will have a helper onsite, craft packs to take home and a small collection of books to browse and borrow.

Bookings are essential for every child and parent/guardian who attends the physical sessions, so that we ensure we abide by social distancing and spacing requirements. See below for more information on each program.

We also have a series of pre-recorded Babytime and Storytime sessions available to view via our Facebook and YouTube channels.

Like our Facebook page to view each session and visit our COVID-19 page for further information about our service delivery.
