Playful Puggles free playgroup

Wednesday 10am in school terms

Playful Puggles is a free half hour playgroup presented by Dr. Rebecca Overeem, Director Eco Relm – a young mother of two pre school aged children and former Education Manager at Phillip Island Nature Parks.

Rebecca will create a different activity each week for mums and bubs/kids to interact and enjoy together in a safe and friendly environment.

Jump and crawl, move and grove, build and create; Playful Puggles has it all! Each week Playful Puggles term three 2018 will engage your child’s fine and gross motor skills, social connections and early literacy and numeracy development. The 30min session incorporates carefully planned activities and music specifically aimed to enhance your child’s potential. Different weekly themes promote children’s sense of wonder about the world around them, so get ready to jet off to outer space, dive into the ocean and the explore the magical treasures of the beach, all without leaving the RSL. Parents, grandparents and carers take your shoes off and get ready for some belly laughing dodgy dancing with your littlies (aged zero to five) at Playful Puggles.

Activities include:

  • Rainbow parachute
  • Crawling tunnel
  • Gymnastics floor beam (pirate plank!)
  • Balls, beanbags and hula hoops
  • Chunky bead designs
  • Block creations
  • Nursery Rhymes
  • Sing a longs
  • Dancing up a storm
  • Active and imaginative play

  • Soft cuddly puppets


After the kids have been dropped to school, we invite parents/guardians for a coffee and cake deal for only $5 from 9.30am each Wednesday in the Lone Pine Bistro.  Your children can play in the kids room first before Playful Puggles commences at 10am.
