Play ses­sions pop­u­lar

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch -

THE suc­cess of the It’s All About Play ini­tia­tive in the City of Wan­neroo has led to other coun­cils and com­mu­nity groups in­tro­duc­ing the pro­gram.

The City launched the pro­gram in 2016 to cre­ate a play en­vi­ron­ment that of­fers early learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties through play.

“The City of Fre­man­tle has also recog­nised the ben­e­fits It’s All About Play has on the com­mu­nity and im­ple­mented its own ses­sions,” Wan­neroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

The Child and Par­ent Cen­tre War­ri­a­pendi in Balga will also host the pop­u­lar ses­sions.

Wan­neroo mother Jane Tol­czyk takes her chil­dren El­iz­a­beth (3) and Peter (2) to the ac­tiv­i­ties at Wan­neroo Li­brary.

“It’s great, it gets us out of the house,” she said. “I get to in­ter­act with other par­ents.”

Ses­sions run at Wan­neroo and Clark­son li­braries, with ses­sions at the Girrawheen Li­brary, Alki­mos pop-up li­brary and Banksia Grove Com­mu­nity Cen­tre added a few months ago.
