It has been a bit of a quiet time at Playcentre these days. The flu
has been going through the Centre. There has still been plenty of fun
being had by the children who were well enough to attend sessions. We
had some mermaids with beautiful tails running around Playcentre. Some
caterpillars were made by crafty children. This term we are working on
cooperative play with the children. There have been some exciting
games with cards (snap, etc). Whanau/Family books are coming to
Playcentre. There are wonderful pictures to share.
The centre will be exploring Port Chalmers. We will be visiting the
Museum, Library and Hey Tiki. The kids are gearing up for a trip to
Songs of The Sea next month. We have been busy creating sea
creatures. You might get surprised by our visiting octopus. The
children are also enjoying the wonderful books about the sea.
BIRTHDAY WISHES: Happy 1st Birthday to Hazel and Sylvia!
