Throughout November the Bundaberg Library will host Playtime sessions on Saturdays for little library goers to enjoy self-guided imaginative play.
A new play experience featuring a different theme will be created each Saturday by the First 5 Forever library staff.
Playtime sessions are proudly funded and supported by the Queensland Government and the State Library of Queensland.
Bundaberg Regional Council Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said, Playtime sessions at the library were designed to encourage a range of imaginative play and language.
“The most important person in a child’s life is their parents and caregivers and play is such a vital part of early language and learning development,” Cr Learmonth said.
“Playtime at the Library is a welcome opportunity for families to explore and learn with the young children in their lives.
“Our library play sessions recognise that play builds and improves social, emotional, physical and cognitive development and will make learning fun.”
Play stations at the library will offer children the opportunity to explore language concepts and encourage the use of words that a child needs to understand when performing everyday tasks.
Families can stay for five minutes or for the whole session exploring the sensory experiences and engaging in the activities.
