New play program at Karalee

KARALEE children can learn more at their weekly playgroup with the addition of a qualified Playgroup Queensland worker to the previously volunteer-only group.

The Karalee branch of Playgroup Queensland will trial the new facilitated play program.

Playgroup Queensland development officer Emma Croston said Playgroups Plus was aimed at giving community playgroups access to a qualified early childhood facilitator.

Ms Croston said the Karalee Playgroup would maintain the typical structure of involving parents as volunteers, but add a facilitator to the mix.

The Karalee playgroup is held at the Rob Thomas Community Hall and will return on Friday, April 20.
