Play sessions popular
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.
