SCOH Building Brickies Provides A Variety of Ways to Receive Parent and Family Support

Building Brickies Bulletin

Each month we send out our Building Brickies Bulletin. These communications feature Infant, Toddler, Preschool and Parent segments along with information about the program and community events for you and your children.

New Baby Gift Program

Know a family who is having a new baby? School City of Hobart Building Brickies has a new baby gift program which provides a developmental toy, book and information to families celebrating a new little one.

Playgroups

Monthly opportunities for children and families to meet in the Cloud Nine Community Playroom for socialization, parent support and play. These are free and open to all families who reside within the School City of Hobart district.

2 Minute Tuesdays

Each Tuesday, Building Brickies shares key parenting and child development information via a 2 Minute video shared via email, text and social media.

Mindful Parent Connect Groups

Parenting is an important and sometimes exhausting job. Get recharged by taking care of you through a Mindful Parent Connect Group.

Learning Check-ups

Once a year, Building Brickies provides a personalized opportunity to do a "Learning Check-up" for your child. This experience is based on play and conversation about how your child is learning, growing and changing over time. These check-ups allow you to discuss activities that would best fit your child's needs and if your child could benefit from further help as they develop.

Personal Visits

Ever want to have your own personal cheerleader and support as you parent? Building Brickies can provide you your own personal parent coach who will meet with you, provide activities, lead you in learning check-ups for your child and help you find the resources you need to achieve the goals you have for your child and your family.

Ready, Set, Go

School City of Hobart Building Brickies partners with local preschools and kindergarten teachers to create a cohort of early learning educators in our community. Together this cohort focuses on professional development, early learning foundations and helping our youngest citizens transition from their time at home into formal education.
