We care about the safety of our community and have made the difficult decision to cancel Bilingual Story Time until further notice.
Although shopping centres are excluded from current Government advice, we are undertaking a number of measures to ensure our Centre is a safe place for the community to continue to enjoy and access essential items. Cleaning has been increased throughout the Malls and bathrooms and hand sanitiser units are provided for your use at the entrances.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates.
Join us for stories, song and rhyme! Bilingual Story Time is available in English, Hindi, Bengali, Vietnamese and Chinese, and provides a chance to meet other families with young children and learn new ways to help your child develop language skills.
Maribyrnong City Council’s Bicultural Team are also available at these sessions to assist you with information on local children’s services and support, including playgroups, maternal and child health, and central registration for kindergarten.
Every Wednesday at Central West (during school terms).
10am-10:45am: Vietnamese/Chinese & English.
11:15am-12pm: Hindi/Bengali & English.
