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.
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 10:00am in the Community Lounge (staff room).
All are welcome! If you would like more information please contact Sarah Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.
