Monica Kanbang - 2013 Winner of Supported Playgroup Facilitator of the Year Award



VICSEG Playgroup Leader Monica Kanbang is the winner of the Supported Playgroup Facilitator of the Year - Playgroup Victoria’s inaugural Playgroup Awards 2013. Monica has been leading the African/South Sudanese Playgroup in Deer Park since 2011. Because playgroup is an unknown concept in the African community, Monica has worked hard to promote its value to families in the Brimbank community at local schools, churches, community events and festivals. Monica uses her own experience as a refugee in Australia to empower families. She promotes the importance of early years experiences for children and helps parents access playgroups, kindergartens and maternal and child health services. VICSEG is proud of Monica’s achievements and warmly congratulates her on winning this inaugural Award.
