The Halls Creek Children and Family Centre held their first playgroup on 30th July. The playgroup focused on encouraging children to actively make choices within the playgroup to create sense of autonomy and independence whilst working in collaboration with other children, educators and families. The children engaged in activities that encouraged them to respect, care and appreciate the natural environment. This was achieved through role modeling and peer modeling listening. Well done Halls Creek Children and Family Centre!   Read More.
