Plumtree is a not-for-profit organisation that provides support for young children with a developmental delay or disability and their families. We help children to grow and develop, reach their potential and participate in the community.
Drawing on our years of experience and broad expertise, we provide education, therapy, information and training in a variety of settings—mostly in the home, and also at the child’s preschool, child care centre or school, and our Marrickville centre.
We provide practical services and support to children and their families, helping them to enjoy the time they spend together and to discover everyday learning opportunities. We see families in the Inner West and South East areas of Sydney. Click on the plum text below for more details.
Getting together to play and learn at Plumtree:
Drop in groups – You can attend anytime as needed : Explorers Play, Stay and Play, Saturday Play, MyTime
Book in groups – 10 week course : Music Together, Splash Together
Workshops and events : Our training calendar supports families in their roles as the key decision makers for their child, by creating opportunities to share knowledge and skills among all families and staff.
We provide each family with one of our highly qualified, caring and compassionate staff members who acts as a key worker and a single point of contact. This person works in partnership with the family to develop a plan that will support their child’s growth and development while considering the needs of the whole family. Each key worker is supported by the skills and experience of the Plumtree team.
