The value of Mons Playgroup Centre

Playgroups are beneficial for children, families and communities.

Mons Playgroup Centre provides all children with the opportunity to learn, experience, investigate and interact with the environment. During play children create meaning from the world around them. It offers the child experiences to think, plan, create, do and find out.

Families are children’s first educators

For years, playgroup has empowered parents and encouraged them to recognise the role they play in their child’s development. Playgroup allows parents to take time out of a busy life, to slow down and enjoy playing with their child, to watch and delight in the amazing steps their child takes while making sense of the world around them.

For children the quality of their early relationships with trusted adults provides the framework for their development and learning.

Simply by being a part of a playgroup, children can experience these benefits.

Did you know?

Research shows children who attend playgroup are less likely to be developmentally vulnerable when they start school (2012 Australian Early Development Census).

Playgroups strengthen communities

The sense of community that results in participation in a playgroup promotes feelings of belonging and connectedness. This has been shown to have a positive effect on children’s and family mental health.

Given parents set up and run local playgroups, they benefit from development opportunities and greater community connection.

Community playgroups make a unique contribution to Australian society – and have done so for more than 40 years.

It is important that our community is informed about the urban water cycle in order that they can have informed opinions.
A free information day will cover topics including an overview of water sources, drinking water, what we put into water when we use it, how we take it out again and how we can be sure that it has been taken out. We will learn about membrane technology for desalination and water recycling.

This event is not to be missed, with clear and easily understandable presentations by some of Australia’s foremost experts in their fields including Ian Law, A. Prof Helen Stratton, Tony McAlister, Warren Traves, Peter Griffiths, Tim Odgers, Jenifer Simpson and Seqwater CEO Jim Pruss.
