Mad Hatter House

Mad Hatter House have partnered with Early Connections to bring more early childhood  intervention services to Wauchope and surrounds.

The before, after school and vacation care space at Mad Hatter House is free during the day which opened the doors for Early Connections to offer their services during this time.

“The Mad Hatter House team encourage and support the importance of play based learning. We are delighted to share our space with such a wonderful and important early childhood intervention service,” said Centre Manager, Rhonwen.

Early Connections will meet families at 24 Hastings Street, Wauchope during school hours on Monday to Friday.

“With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme we can offer expanded services and a growing team of professionals to families in the area,” said Beth Todd Director Early Connections Port Macquarie/Hastings.

Early Childhood Intervention services are provided by a team of early childhood teachers with the support of speech pathologists, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and child psychologist.

The Early Connections team are giving Mad Hatter House free staff training in the form of professional development to support their work with children aged 5 – 12.

The professional development will help Mad Hatter staff to gain skills and knowledge in supporting the development and inclusion of children who attend Mad Hatter House.
