Goodstart Merriwa director Natasha Browne said the not-for-profit centre had invested in a ‘Play and Learning to Socialise’ (PALS) pack from Early Childhood Australia, thanks to a Department of Communities grant.
Mrs Browne said the centre, which cares for children from birth to three-years-old, had run a 10-week PALS program recently with support from Child Australia.
‘This program was so successful, with important life-skill messages being embedded into children’s daily routines and transitions,’ she said.
Mrs Browne said they ran several other programs, including sustainable education on being water-wise, waste-wise and recycling, and annual visits from Constable Care.
