Having a child under five is a fun, chaotic, magical and busy time where you’re constantly looking for new ways to keep them stimulated and entertained. If you’ve currently got a baby, toddler or pre-schooler at home with you on Monday or Wednesday mornings, we’ve found two great programs for you to squeeze in just before that all-important midday nap!

Heart of Impact Kids is hosting two multi-sensory early learning programs every week in Term 1. Here’s the schedule.

Mondays = Messy Monday

This is a messy, sensory play session running from 10am to 11am during the term. It gets little ones exploring, learning and discovering using various materials – think sand, colourful rice, cereal, spaghetti, foam, pom poms, jelly and water. Awesome for kids who love to get into everything!

Wednesdays = Music Morning

A music and movement session, kicking off at 10am during the term. These are filled with percussion instruments, songs, dance and bubbles.

Both Messy Monday and Music Morning are free so that all kids on the Central Coast can get involved in excellent early learning programs. Research has shown that early learning opportunities help to prepare children for the social, emotional, and cognitive demands of school – and Heart of Impact Kids is passionate about providing high-quality early childhood educational sessions.  Their programs are planned and led by a qualified teacher to ensure they are offering the best possible start to your child’s learning and developmental journey.

Bookings are required for Messy Monday so keep an eye on Heart of Impact Kids Facebook page for the registration link. No registration is required for Music Morning – just turn up, sign up and get ready to boogie.
