BLUESKIN PLAYCENTRE

By Marion Rucker

We've had a busy month with our neighbourhood theme, visiting the
garden centre and cafe, Bland Park, story time at the library and the
Ecoscantuary, with our children learning lots about what is on our
doorstep. We also enjoyed Miss Burra bringing Room 3 to visit us at
Playcentre.
Children have enjoyed lots of messy play – cornflour, slime and finger
paints to name a few. Our swan plants have been a real hit with a
Monarch butterfly emerging from its chrysalis during a session, drying
its wings and flying away, watched by 18 children. To celebrate, as
part of our baking programme, we made butterfly cakes.
We have welcomed two new families this month: Soo with Jessica and
Natalie with Ellie. Happy birthday to Jessica who turned two and
Benedict now four!
Playcentre will finish on March 31 for Easter, reopening on Monday April 19.
We are also now collecting for our annual jumble sale that is to be
held on Sunday May 23. Donations can be left at playcentre during
opening hours.
