As the family worker, I usually join the toddler group when it meets on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (from 9:30am, contact the office on 943 1164 for more details). A couple of weeks ago, the biologist in me took over and I was intrigued by the selection of “dinosaurs” that came out of the dinosaur toy box in the toy cupboard.
I had good fun that day playing with the dinosaurs and reading the dinosaur books with the children (should perhaps read “other children”!) It mixes my love of science and playing. What more could I want?
That’s the thing when you employ someone to do work with children – they can get as excited about the toys as the little ones do.
