Roxby Downs has a very large population of children between 0 to 5 years old and there are many regular activities available to cater to their needs.
Below this calendar is an explanation of the regular events available for Under 5's.
Toddler Storytime runs on Tuesdays and Fridays (repeat session) at 9:30am and includes a combination of singing, dancing, craft time and storytelling.
Research confirms reading to children just 10 minutes each day strengthens literacy, models positive reading behaviour, and builds children’s self-esteem about reading.
Toddler Storytime is a partnership between the Roxby Downs Health Service and the Library.
Bookings are not required.
Join us in the Dunes Play Café every Thursday morning, 9:30-11:00 am.
Come and have a chat, a coffee, and meet other families. Community Health staff will be available to answer any questions, and Strengthening our Families volunteers are there to offer an extra set of hands while Mum or Dad enjoys a coffee.
All are welcome!
