Koala Joeys Program at Kalbar
Koala Joeys is a specifically created program for young children and their parents/carers. The program focuses on using nursery rhymes, songs, dance, movement and stories to engage young children. Koala Joeys is a program designed for young children up to the age they enter school. It is a fun and interactive program that provides opportunities for oral language experiences, social interactions and extension of vocabulary.
Koala Joeys enables children opportunities to:-
*Develop language, literacy and numeracy skills
*Develop good listening skills
*Develop social skills appropriate for school
*Have fun and interact with other children and adults
*Develop a community of friends
Koala Joeys will run from 9-9.45am on Thursday mornings in the Library. The session will be followed by morning tea. I am also very keen to follow this up with a playgroup. The playgroup would be aimed at engaging children in a variety of structured and unstructured experiences. If you would like any further information please contact Melissa Muller.
