Playgroup and Theraplay
At St Patrick's Primary School we value the relationships with our families. We believe that when we enrol a student, we enrol the whole family. That's why at St Patrick's we offer opportunities for younger siblings and their parents/carers to also engage with the school through our Playgroup and Theraplay programs.
Playgroup has finished for Term 1. We will have an update on when we will return in Term 2.
St Patrick's Playgroup is a place for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and their parents, grandparents and carers to come together and interact in a safe and friendly environment.
We operate every Monday of the school term from 9:00am to 10:30am in the Community Lounge (staff room).
Both existing and new families to the St Patrick's community are all welcome! Playgroup can be a great way for you to become familiar with our school if you are thinking of applying for a prep position in the future.
If you would like more information please contact Anne Remedios at email@example.com or ask our office staff.
Hoping to see you there!
Theraplay is an engaging, playful, relationship-focused treatment method that is interactive, physical and fun. It can be used for children and adults of all ages, but is most effective between the ages of 18 months and 12 years.
Children who can benefit from Theraplay often show internalised behaviours such as withdrawal, depression, fearfulness or shyness, externalised behaviours such as acting out, anger and non-compliance, and also relationship or attachment problems.
Theraplay has been used with children with ASD, developmental delays and physical disorders quite effectively.
If you would like some more information about Theraplay, please contact Cassie Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
