Toy Library

 

It’s going to be a day of big fun for small people tomorrow Thursday, October 4 at the Freo Toy Library Open Day.

The City of Fremantle’s toy library is the biggest in WA, with a huge range of toys, costumes, construction sets, musical instruments and puzzles.

The open day is a great opportunity for parents and kids to come down and check out all the things the Toy Library has to offer.

Buster It’s All About Play  is coming, there’s a Cozy Coupe race track happening, and a sensory play area, LEGO station, face painting and a sausage sizzle.

Wendy Binks – the author of the ‘Where’s Stripey’ children’s books – is coming to do a couple of story time sessions as well

The Freo Toy Library Open Day is on Thursday 4 October from 10am-3pm and entry is free.

The toy library, at the Fremantle PCYC at 34 Paget Street in Hilton, is open four days a week and is one of the few fully-staffed toy libraries in Perth.

It’s stocked with a range of toys to suit 0-7 year olds, with expert staff to provide advice on selecting age and skill appropriate toys.

For more information visit the Toy Library page on the City of Fremantle website.

School holidays are nearly here-again, so Fremantle’s Spare Parts Puppet Theatre will be showing The Night Zoo from September 22 onward.

Jamie lives in a concrete jungle, a fast-paced and busy city. From her window high above the city Jamie dreams of making friends with animals, but Mum and Dad won’t let her have a pet in the apartment. Tonight, her dreams will take her on a one-of-a-kind visit to the zoo, where she discovers the remarkable joy an animal can bring into her life. The Night Zoo explores the special connection between humans and animals and the importance of caring for another living thing.

September 22 to October 6 Monday to Saturday 10am and 1pm daily (no shows Sundays or Public Holidays) plus special Friday 6.30pm performances on Sep 28 and Oct 5.

Price: From $23 (plus booking fee)
Duration: 45 mins

Kazoomies

 

It was full house for Father’s Day breakfast, brunch and lunch at KAZOOMIES on Fremantle’s Victoria Quay, with people queueing up to get a table. Word of mouth and reviews of excellent food is making this small restaurant one of Freo’s favourites. Try it out one day!

It is a great spot to enjoy the sun while watching the activities in Fremantle Port, and wandering around the E Shed markets.

A message from BEYONDBLUE:

Today is National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day – a special day to celebrate the strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their culture.

BEYONDBLUE acknowledge the significant role that parents, carers and elders play in strengthening children’s connection to culture, community and identity. These connections are vital to building a child’s resilience, sense of belonging and social and emotional wellbeing.

BEYONDBLUE encourages all Australians to learn more about Aboriginal Children’s Day and the importance of celebrating children’s connection to their culture to support their resilience. You can find out more by visiting www.SNAICC.org.au

GROWERS GREEN SCHOOL HOLIDAY START

Posted in children, city of fremantle, community, family, growers green markets, Uncategorized by freoview on July 1, 2018

 

 

The sun is out and it is a nice invigorating morning, so why not start the school holidays at the fantastic Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road.

They have plenty of hot drinks and food to keep you warm and there is a lot of fresh produce, breads, pastries and heap of other things.

The Growers Green is a great community meeting place to catch up with friends, or make new ones. There is live music by Freo musicians, Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm, face painting, etc.

Once you’ve done that go and enjoy the Winter World on the Esplanade and do some skating, build a snow man, drink mulled wine and eat roasted nuts.

Have a fun Sunday!

FREO’S WINTERWORLD SKATING DELIGHT

The Fremantle WINTERWORLD skating festival opened yesterday to the delight of young and old.

The ice rink has been made all weather proof with a roof over it, because last year there was a lot of rain which discouraged people from skating.

The big blue slide is always a big attraction and so are the mulled wine and roasted chestnuts. There are a lot of food stalls, from Indian to pizza, so head out to the Fremantle Esplanade for some hours of real winter fun.

WINTERWORLD is open every day till mid July.

Children are the most important people in the world, so good to see the City of Fremantle is trying to make life a bit more fun for them.

The new playground equipment at these four children’s playgrounds will be ready by the end of July this year.
