June 2018 Recipients
The children at Waterloo Playcentre love to bake, so the playcentre received $1,800 from the Mazda Foundation to purchase an oven.
Baking is a highlight for the children during sessions, allowing them to share delicious kai creations at the end of story time and develop many skills in the process. While baking together, there is a focus on communication, vocabulary and the process it takes to get the end result.
The playcentre is a community-based parent co-operative that creates free play learning experiences the children can share with other kids of all ages.
