Village Community Centre Inc. endeavors to provide a variety of activities for families and Family Support.

Our programs are facilitated by our Family Support Worker Melissa Helou (MSW)



BABY MAKES 3 (flyer) is a new program – Studio Village Community Centre is, we believe,
the only place this program is available in Southern QLD!!

‘Baby Makes 3’ looks at how your relationship is impacted by the arrival of a first baby, with strategies to maintain connection and communication
We often invest in protection for our finances by seeing an accountant, and our house and contents with insurance… Yet the greatest gift we can give our children is a healthy relationship,
but we infrequently take preventive and protective actions for our relationship until things are difficult.

Baby Makes 3 is a way of exploring relationship hurdles at a time of greater stress on the relationship, when the focus is on a new baby to the relationship
This is a program especially for new parents, or a first baby of the relationship – with baby under 12 months of age
and is about healthy relationships with a new bub in the family

This program is co-facilitated by Nikki & Brendan
