Our community centre is a hub of activity. Here are some we currently offer:
During school terms, playgroups meet weekly. We are currently hosting a Thursday playgroup meeting on Thursday 9.30 – 11.30am. Being ‘Intergenerational’ means there are senior members of our congregation that help, play with the children and offer support to the parents. Grandparents who care for their children are also very welcome.
If you have a small group that are interested in starting a Playgroup we have availability for other group times. Please contact Mary Elton firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the options with her to join our existing group, or start a new one. You can also find out more about our playgroup via Facebook – www.fb.me/mrucplaygroup
Ready Set Go!
Is a fully supervised pre-kindy program that operates in terms 2-4 to help children with the transition to Kindy the following year. It is run by a qualified Early Childhood teacher, with the help of volunteers. The program mirrors a Kindy session with mat time, group activities, songs and stories, and play time. Children are dropped off and picked up for the two hour session much like would happen in Kindy. Read a nice article about RSG HERE
