Early childhood is an important time for wellbeing as it impacts on future physical and mental health and wellbeing, as well as relationships and educational success (Hunter Institute of Mental Health, 2014).

Given this critical time of development, PLC has launched Lighthouse Beginners (0-5 years) to support child wellbeing and develop critical skills from the earliest opportunity.

Lighthouse Beginners is open to all community members.

The Lighthouse Beginners programme provides a number of classes designed to nurture your child to be happy, confident, creative and ready to learn. Through art, toddlers will develop literacy and self expression, while building self esteem and resilience. Most importantly, these classes open neural pathways to lay foundation for learning and emotional wellbeing.

PLAYworks | Petite Artists (18 months - 3 years)

In our busy lives, it is sometimes hard to find time to direct your attention solely to your child. Petite Artists is an hour a week where you can. It is a special session that supports a shared experience between parent/carer and child through creative expression. Each Petite Artists session also includes music, movement, Montessori-inspired activities and sensory invitations to play. Parent/Carer attends with child.
