Play Starters

Children learn through play. They find out about the world they live in, grow in confidence and learn how to get along with others.

The Play Starters book has been developed by Playgroup WA (Inc.) and has been tried and tested over time by many children, parents and carers throughout Australia. This A5 sized book is 57 pages long and jam packed with ideas for planning play experiences for young children that are low cost, easy to organise and involve the participation of adults and children together. It contains sections on Messy Play, Physical Play, Music and Movement, Let’s Explore and Babies.

Play Starters is available for purchase from Playgroup SA head office for $5 + postage.
