The 2023 Children’s Network Meetings will commence on Thursday 8th February 2024, 9.30 -11.30 am, at Uniting, 291a Maroondah Hwy, on Level 1 (up the stairs)

It’d be great to see people attend this meeting onsite to connect with colleagues and have the opportunity to network with other practitioners in the region.

Please RSVP if you are intending to attend. RSVP’s are strongly encouraged for seating and catering, even the day before, so I have an idea of how many people to wait for on the day. This is a practitioner meeting and so I understand if things change on the day-client need will always take priority.

Morning tea will consist of dip, cheese, fruit and crackers (gluten free and vegetarian options will be provided). Please let me know if you have specific dietary requirements/allergies. You are invited to bring your favourite mug and water bottle along-tea and coffee will be provided.

Please share this information with colleagues you think may be able and interested to attend.
