EUREKA PLAYGROUP AT MADE is November Playgroup of the Month for fostering community engagement and running a welcoming playgroup.
The playgroup has been active for 2 years and is constantly growing. There are up to 20 families in attendance, with 10 – 12 families attending regularly.
Playgroup Coordinator Rebecca Love said word of mouth and Facebook sharing has facilitated in increasing playgroup numbers, “sometimes we have up to 40 children at a session.”
Eureka playgroup engages in a huge variety of sensory and craft activities. On St Patricks Day the playgroup engaged in creative crafts and made green pasta bead necklaces for the children to take home.
The playgroup has an open Facebook page, which facilitates in communication between existing members and families thinking of attending.
Playgroup Development Consultant for Ballarat and Surrounds Amy Treyvaud said the playgroup aims to create a warm, friendly and inclusive environment each week, “it’s one of the reasons Eureka playgroup is so popular in the area.”
The group is in the process of making a film about playgroup and hope to launch it in the theatre at MADE on Tuesday December 13th.
The Playgroup of the Month award is a Playgroup Victoria initiative that acknowledges good work being done by a playgroup in its community.
