Playgroup

 

We have a very active and exciting Playgroup on a Tuesday and Wednesday 9 -11am in the Activity Centre.

All Queensland families who register with Playgroup Queensland before their child’s first birthday can now receive a free 12-month family membership as part of the Queensland Government’s Play Stars initiative. With more than 60,000 babies born in Queensland each year, Play Stars will benefit many new families by creating more opportunities for children to learn through play, while supporting parents and carers in their role as first teachers.

The
Play Stars initiative is an action from the Advancing education: An action plan for education in Queensland and will be delivered in partnership with Playgroup Queensland over the next five years. Register online or visit the Playgroup Queensland website for more information.

Parents, carers, children and babies meet together each week in a relaxed environment. At Playgroup, families are given the opportunity to connect with other families in their local communities, to share knowledge, seek advice and gain invaluable support.
 
Children love Playgroup because they can: 
∗ Participate in new experiences
∗ Develop and increase their social skills
∗ Learn about sharing, co-operation and  simple routines
∗ Interact with other adults and children in a safe environment
∗ Have fun
