About the Event

Our Thursday playgroup program is designed to allow children aged 2 to 5 years (siblings under 2 years free-of-charge) to make meaningful connections to nature and learn about animals and the enviornment, while being immersed in a beautiful wetland area and having lots of fun! Teachers Leigh and Sarah will deliver fully-guided sessions that explore a different theme each week, through a combination of nature-based activities. 

A typical session might include storytelling, puppets, singalongs, guided nature walks, art and craft activities, science enquiries, sensory experiences and open-ended indoor play in our dedicated early-learning space. The early-learning room contains a variety of books, puzzles, costumes, puppets and other resources for your child to enjoy, and the Discovery Centre has interactive features and animal enclosures to explore.

Sessions will run for approximately 90 minutes to optimise your child's enagagement and energy levels. 

Please dress for mess! We will be exploring nature and making crafts, so we encourage children to wear clothes that can afford to get a little wet, dirty or painted. Remember also to bring a hat, waterbottle, optional morning tea, and covered shoes or gumboots (dependent on weather).

Important to note: As the centre is set in a wetland area, a parent or carer must be present at all times during the session. Supervision is key to providing your child with a safe and fun learning environment!
