• Crayola’s Mess Free Colouring Pack Hits the Mark

    At Playgroup Queensland we know the value of drawing and colouring when it comes to developing a child’s ‘skills’ palette.

  • From Bedtime Stories To Imaginative Play

    Children love stories!

    They are drawn to heroic characters, adventure, exploration and magic. It’s childhood in a nutshell.

    Once children become immersed in a story they will transpose it to their play. This type of play is called imaginative play, also referred to as “pretend play” or “role play”.
