Fun, magic and music in the park

Overport Park came alive with fun, magic and music during Children’s Week last month as hundreds of families attended the Community Kinders Plus Family Fun Day.

With perfect spring weather, the children were entertained with magic performances in The Dreaming Space, giant bubble workshops, singing and dancing with Hey Dee Ho, face painting, and the animal farm.  Kindergartens throughout Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula hosted hands-on activities for the children such as pot planting, sensory play, rock painting, arts and crafts.

“The day is all about promoting the importance of early childhood education,” said Jane Spencer, the chief executive of CKP, which is responsible for the management of 21 kindergartens throughout Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.  “It’s a fun day where we can showcase each of our kindergartens and talk with new families about the engaging programs we run.”

Jane said the day would not have been possible without the support of sponsors such as presenting partner Telstra Business Centre, major sponsors Modern Visual and KingSwim, along with festival sponsors Mornington Peninsula Magazine, Frankly Frankston, Jamica Photography and Hey Dee Ho Educational Services.
