Waihopai Playcentre

Waihopai Playcentre in Invercargill has received $937.25 to fund new equipment for its science and environment area to encourage children to learn as they play and have fun.

The family focused centre is run by parents, providing the children with a warm and welcoming environment to enable them to develop into confident independent learners.

The grant will allow the centre to buy science equipment, including animal x-rays, electricity kits, eye droppers and beakers so the parents and children can continue exploring and learning together.
