2022 monkey play

Monkey Play is a monthly playgroup located in the foyer of our home venue, the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre.

Monkey Play allows very young people to explore the world around them through play based learning and craft activities that incorporate recycled materials and that specifically target the development of fine motor skills.

Our program of activities is linked to the Early Years Learning Framework, and the monthly themes are inspired by the season of performance in the venue. Our content encourages children to be engaged, to grow and to step into the world of their imaginations where anything is possible!

Monkey Play is specifically differentiated to include suitable activities for children between 0-5. Each activity station varies in difficulty from role play to more advanced craft activities, so that every child can find something they love. The layout of Monkey Play is designed to build familiarity so that children feel a sense of ownership and connection to the space.

Each month we open our doors to the community to allow parents to come together and meet new people, while their little ones have a lot of fun!
