MCWA received funding to work on establishing playgroups in various areas around Melbourne. The playgroups do not have a specific age limit since many families have children from different age groups. MCWA will tailor activities for all children.

The aim of this playgroup is to teach and encouraging the young generations from our NES community to speak Macedonian alongside the English language whilst learning vital social skills. These playgroups also provide an opportunity for grandparents and parents to come together at a secured venue and in a friendly environment, exchange experiences and build relationships.

Once established the playgroup will continue to run with the assistance of its members and MCWA volunteer.

Within this project a Facebook page called “Makedonski pesnichki za deca” ( is opened where members share songs from their childhood.

A book with rhymes in the Macedonian language has been developed by MCWA with the help of our friends from the Facebook group “Makedonski pesnichki za deca”.
