Children and Families

Deception Bay Community Youth Programs delivers a range of playgroups, activities and events through our DBay Families program for families with children 0 -12 in Deception Bay.

Through these programs, DBCYP hopes to see families enjoy their children, love them and gain any supports needed along the way. DBay Families is committed to seeing that Deception Bay is a community where children are loved, nurtured and valued. We look forward to meeting you at one of our events or activities.

DBay Families is a Communities for Children program funded by the Australian Government.
