Every Playcentre has a story. Discover our many stories here.: March 2017
Inspired by a blog post shared on their facebook page, members of Rangiora Playcentre recently decided to make a sensory walkway for their centre. With the help of the Playcentre community and the generosity of Woodend Nursery, theyve since created something truly special. Playcentre parent Esther Small filled me in on the details of the project.
At Playcentre we celebrate the involvement of parents but what about the grandparents who also attend sessions? Whether supporting the occasional fundraiser or as important caregivers and regular attendees, many grandparents play a significant role in our organisation.
On the first, thankfully warm, day of autumn six Playcentres from across the city opted to do a little offsite exploring together. Avonhead Playcentre had put out an invitation to join them at Cave Rock, Sumner for their regular Wild Wednesday explorer session. Always keen for an outdoor adventure, Elliott and I tagged along.
