Parents and carers of children under five can still stay connected during lockdown with virtual playgroups on Zoom.
Eurobodalla Council is holding its 3Bs Playgroups online to ensure parents and children don’t miss out.
In short 30-minute sessions, educators will lead interactive activities such as virtual story time, active movement, singing, cooking experiments, nature play and more. They’ll also share ideas for things to do at home and outdoors.
Council’s 3Bs Playgroup coordinator Justine Tominey said it was important parents and carers of young children did not become too isolated from the community as the lockdown continues.
“These Zoom catch-ups are a great way for parents to stay connected, to continue building relationships with other people in their community and learn great ideas for play that continue childhood education at home,” she said.
“We’ll also have plenty of fun too!”
The playgroups will continue according to physical location or playgroup theme:
Surfside, fortnightly on Tuesdays, 10-10.30am
Multicultural playgroup, weekly on Thursdays, 10-10.30am
Muddy Puddles playgroup for families concerned about their child’s development, weekly on Fridays, 10-10.30am
