Welcome back to Nature Playgroup for 2019
Thursday, 21 February 2019
Our Early Childhood Education and Care team welcomes you to Nature Playgroup for 2019!
Nature Playgroup will commence for 2019 on Monday 25 February, from 9.30am until 11.30am. This year the Playgroup will be operating only on Mondays, and we follow the Victorian school term calendar, with no Playgroup over the term breaks or on public holidays.
The aim of Nature Playgroup is for the children to engage with the outdoors and nature whatever the weather, and to enjoy their natural world and outdoor play. Our Nature Playgroup space makes the most of the natural bush setting and open spaces beside the creek, where the children can explore, imagine, create and have fun, jump in puddles, climb trees, or make mud pies.
So whether you are a returning participant or coming along for the very first time this year, you’ll be sure to find new adventures here onsite in our Nature Playgroup setting! The Playgroup also involves our students from the Early Childhood Education and Care courses, and we have students at most Playgroup sessions. The Nature Playgroup gives our students opportunities to practise the theory they have covered in their classes while they enjoy the great outdoors through the eyes of their small playmates!
Remember to bring your hats for outdoor play, and you are welcome to bring along your own morning tea to snack on.
Also, please ensure you fill in a ‘Child information and permission form’ for each of your children who are attending Nature Playgroup. Once you decide our Nature Playgroup is right for you, we do recommend for insurance purposes that you also take up a membership with Playgroup Victoria. Please see our ‘About Nature Playgroup letter’ or speak to the Nature Playgroup Coordinator Kim if you need further information.
