Dads join chil­dren at play

Kapi-Mana News - - EDUCATION -

Dads got a spe­cial in­vi­ta­tion to Pare­mata Play­cen­tre to co­in­cide with Fa­ther’s Day.

Pare­mata Play­cen­tre opened its doors to dads so they could en­joy a Play­cen­tre ses­sion, which many had not had a chance to ex­pe­ri­ence.

Team leader Ch­eryl Lovett says, with a lot of fathers busy at work, they don’t get to see what a rich en­vi­ron­ment Play­cen­tre is.

Fathers took the day off work or popped in dur­ing the morn­ing to help with the con­struc­tion of forts, sand­cas­tles and train tracks, along with feet paint­ing, Play-Doh cup­cakes, sto­ries and dress-ups.

Dad Bernard Beck­ett im­pressed with what he saw.

“From a fa­ther’s point of view it was just mar­vel­lous see­ing the world

was that has been cre­ated for my boys.’’
