Launching: Saturday Morning Wilderness Playgroup

The Bold Park Community School Wilderness Playgroup connects our young members and their families with nature by basing this experience entirely in an outdoor environment.

The children engage in imaginative, creative and scientific play through a nature rich environment. Whether it is climbing to the top of a hill, damming a flowing creek, playing in mud or engaging in creative encounters with natural materials – our young members forge a relationship with nature which stays with them forever.

The playgroup is facillitated by a trained teacher, who is passionate about nature-based education and ensures that the children take appropriate risks in a safe and nurturing environment, The nature and outdoor setting of the playgroup not only challenges parents to trust their children but also helps them to see and value the lessons which nature offers.

The Wilderness Playgroup which runs on Friday is very popular and we are pleased to be trialling a Saturday morning group running from 9.00am to 11.30am. And is suitable for children aged 18 – 36 months.

To register or Saturday Playgroup or inquire about places available, please email Lisa, our Playgroup Registrar on lisa@boldpark.com or phone us directly on 9387 5050.

 

Who is running the Saturday Morning Playgroup?

Sarah and Max have been with us at Friday morning playgroup during Term 3, getting to know how things run at playgroup. Starting from Term 4, Sarah will lead a new playgroup session on Saturday mornings. The following introduction was recently circulated in our School Newsflash:

We are pleased to announce that we will be trialing a Saturdays Playgroup during Term 4. The playgroup will run each Saturday for the duration of Term 4 commencing at 9:00am and concluding at 11:30am.

Saturday playgroup will be led by Sarah Polson-Brown, an educator with a number of years experience at Bold Park Community School who returns from Maternity Leave this term. Graduating with honours from Murdoch University, Sarah completed a degree in primary education, specialising in early childhood development.

Professionally, Sarah is passionate about nature based play, and giving children opportunities to connect with the outdoors while developing their physical, social, emotional and cognitive domains and is a welcome addition to our Early Learning Team.
