Sensory Playgroup

30 minutes: 12 months - 5 years

Wednesday  10:30

Sensory playgroup is a fun & engaging session suited to children from 12 months to 5 years of age. This is a play-based playgroup, meaning that the experiences are generally open-ended & free to personal interpretation. Children are invited to...play!

Children learn through their senses and this group provides many opportunities to engage with a variety of mediums allowing children to not only develop cognitively, but to develop skills in emotional regulation & self calming techniques.

The sessions offer a broad range of experiences, which, although changing on a weekly basis, carry a reoccurring structure to promote routine & predictability. Through predictability & routine, children become more comfortable & confident to explore their environment & engage wholly with the activities.

Experiences generally include:

- a messy, hands-on activity

- a creative, art-based experience

- a fine motor challenge

- literacy (books & story boards)

- role play (dress ups, dolls, animals, etc)

Through our playgroups, we see children develop socially, emotionally, physically & cognitively, as well as have a great time. We also see the development of community ties & friendships between the parents & carers. To support this, we strongly encourage term bookings.

Beyond Birth Doula - Mothers Circle

1 hour:  Mothers

(some quiet play space for older siblings available)

Thursday10:30

Join us at our mother’s circle to experience a unique type of mothers group for mums with babies in arms.

Through the generations, and still in many other cultures today, motherhood has always been a community role. Mothers have worked together to learn from one another, share with one another and most importantly to HELP one another. Yet today motherhood can be a lonely and isolating role.

What does a mother’s circle look like?
Our mothers circle involves of sitting in an open circle where a facilitator will lead introductions and conversation to ensure everybody is included.  We will discuss a weekly topic on motherhood; speak as much or as little as you like. Our intention is to discuss the highs and lows, the breakthroughs and the breakdowns in a caring non-judgemental space.

We welcome you to join our mothers circle to make new connections and friendships in a relaxed environment.

Enjoy a small toddler play area during the circle, a free small hot beverage upon entry and free café entry following the circle.

$10 per session (with term booking)
