Warrington Playcentre

By Lisa Hall

Happy spring to all! Our centre is certainly looking lovely as the
daffodils launch into bloom and the blossoms delight us – especially
when the breeze blows the tiny petals around like snowflakes. We are
beginning to feel a lot like bananas as we peel off all our winter
layers and enjoy the warming weather.
We created amazing sand saucers and painted stones for Blueskin Garden
Club's Spring Flower Show, recently. We are also getting our
vegetables and sunflowers ready for planting out around our garden and
have been excitedly planting grasses behind the centre. There are
green thumbs, fingers and sometimes whole bodies everywhere!
We have been excitedly welcoming lots of new friends to Playcentre and
are enjoying getting to know them and their parents. We are looking
into being open on Mondays too (dates to be advised) as our numbers
increase. If you are able to join us on Mondays please give the
Playcentre a ring so we can book you in.
We continue to update and improve our environment and have just had a
new fence installed at the back of our Wild Things patch, and new
gates on the Station Road entrance – thanks Mark Horsefield – they
look very smart and keep us where we're supposed to be beautifully!
We are also going to be taking orders for the deliciously yummy kiwi
classic, and 'oh-so-useful-to-have-in-the-freezer' cheese roll
shortly, as a fundraising venture. So if you love them and know they
are a great stand-by for rumbling tummies get in touch with us at the
numbers below and we will get rolling!
Three cheers for Flynn and Jamie who have just turned into terrific
three year olds! Double the trouble but triple in years; have a
fantastic year full of fun, learning and growing.
If you are interested in joining in the fun with us, we are open
Wednesdays and Fridays 9:15am to 12:15pm, or phone the Playcentre 027
227 7329 for more information. We'd love to meet you! Ka kite ano!
