Play Dates

This is a unique class which usually runs on a Friday afternoon 4-5.30pm for children and their significant adult. A simple art activity that is open-ended is provided with the relevant instruction. Parents get to see their kids in a different environment; children get to see their adults not always knowing what to do and, sometimes, even making mistakes. (In other words, modelling RESILIENCE.)

Each term the activities are planned as a sequence but designed so that if you miss one you are not at a disadvantage or missing out.
