Federal MP Michelle Rowland today, Thursday 24 August 2017, hosted the annual Greenway Welcoming the Babies ceremony at Stanhope Gardens Leisure Centre.
The ceremony welcomed the littlest members of the community (children aged 0-2 years) and recognised the significant contributions of the parents. All babies were presented with a certificate, native shrub and show bag.
Amongst the face painting, balloon animals and information stalls in the courtyard, our mobile supported playgroup provided a sensory haven for children and a minute of relaxation for parents. Senses were stimulated with an assortment of musical instruments such as drums, maracas and shakers along with rainbow building and stacking blocks.
Sensory play is important for the development of all children. Children use their senses to understand and experience their surroundings and the world they live in, via sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste.
