World’s Biggest Playgroup Day
Playgroup NSW will be hosting World’s Biggest Playgroup Day at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour, on Wednesday, 23 March 2011. This free event will see the museum packed full of activities for 0-5 year olds from 9.30am to 4.00pm, showcasing the wonderful experience Playgroup has to offer parents and children.
Thousands of mums, dads, carers and children are expected to join in the free entertainment and activities in celebration of National Playgroup Week. The day will bring together a variety of physical, educational and musical play experiences, as well as some of the most loved children’s television characters.
Popular CBeebies characters, the ZingZillas will be one of the many special guests performing on the day. Children will dance and sing along with Dorothy the Dinosaur and Friends as they perform on the Playgroup Stage. Aspiring ballerinas will be able to join the fun with numerous dance workshops run by no other than Angelina Ballerina herself.
Children will be able to get up close and personal with some of Australia’s amazing wildlife thanks to the Taronga Zoomobile. Action packed activities run by sporting outfits including Jungle Sports, Nepean Gymnastics Academy, Little Kickers and Animalates will encourage development of physical skills. From dress ups to dance classes, obstacle courses to craft, children will be spoilt for choice on deciding what to do next.
