Just what are the benefits?March 26, 2014 4:28am
Playgroup offers babies, toddlers and preschoolers who are going through a stage of rapid skill and brain development, the opportunity to stimulate their senses. This week is National Playgroup Week.
Seymour Playgroup has been a part of the community for 30 years. It is based at the Igloo building at Kings Park.
During the past two years the centre has undergone major upgrades, thanks to donations from Bunnings Craigieburn and the volunteer work of members. These upgrades include new flooring, painting and equipment purchases.
Seymour Playgroup provides a safe and engaging environment for children to learn, be creative and socialise. During a typical two-hour session children have the opportunity to engage in indoor activities, such as an organised craft activity, puzzles, drawing, sand table, play dough, books, kinder gym equipment, climbing mats, dolls and prams, indoor bikes, educational computer games and dress ups.
Following a shared morning tea the session finishes with outdoor play in the playground area.
Our outdoor area has also undergone development with the inclusion of a bike track, but it is the committee’s focus for further upgrades by installing shade sails.
We are therefore looking for fundraising opportunities and donations from the community to make these improvements.
Playgroup operates on Mondays and Fridays from 10
Visitors are asked to bring a piece of fruit to share. Seymour Playgroup offers the first three sessions for free.
Following this membership fees are $30 per term or $100 for the year, plus a $30 a year Playgroup Victoria insurance fee.
For any inquiries, fundraising ideas or to make donations, phone Seymour Playgroup president Shannon Inness on 0417
