Play & Learn

IMG_8626

Our Play and Learn program targets 2, 3 and 4 year olds who have not yet begun Kindergarten.  If you have younger children or babies, they are also welcome. This is an opportunity for young children to begin to develop their confidence and curiosity as learners prior to commencing Kindergarten in a safe and secure environment with their parents/carers beside them.

At Play and Learn, the teacher, parents/carers and children all play, explore and learn alongside each other. Children will have fun participating in a variety of experiences including art, painting, drawing with various media, play dough, puzzles, sharing books, construction, toys, role play and outside play. All of these activities help to develop the children’s talking, reading, creativity, physical, social and emotional skills.

Play and Learn also gives parents/carers valuable learning time with their children, a time to talk to other parents/carers and school staff, learn about the School and the importance of positive relationships between home and school.

The Play and Learn Program is conducted in Ballygriffin House (the white house next to the church).    It is held every Tuesday from 9.30am to 10.30am commencing the 3rd week of Term 1 and the second week of Terms 2 to 4.   A $2 per child donation is appreciated at these sessions to assist with the cost of resources.

All participants are asked to abide by the School’s Sun Protection Policy (link to Policy) and to bring a drink (preferably water).   Participating children require an art smock or a change of clothes.

If you are planning to attend our Play and Learn sessions with your child/children please call the School Office on 6244 7288 to register.   Office staff will also assist with any queries you may have.

Please be aware that participation in this program does not guarantee future enrolment at Corpus Christi Catholic School.
