Entering its 50th year, Play School encourages children to wonder and learn through the medium of play. Music, art and the imagination are all key ingredients as two hosts take us on an intimate and fun journey revolving around a week.
Join Zindzi and Nicholas as they set up a gadgets and gizmos workshop, play with a special coded gizmo, and tell the story Lost In Silly Space. Through the windows, we visit the Royal Australian Mint.
Teo and Hunter go on a treasure hunt with metal detectors, act out the story Whizzmo's Gizmos, and play with the toys in an outdoor playground. Through the windows, we watch how a marble run is made.
Join Andrew and Leah as they take the toys on a snow adventure, make pictures with coloured ice, see penguins in the Antarctic through the windows, make a Wild Places scrapbook and make a paper snowflake.
Join Leah and Jay as they make a cradle for baby Maurice and tuck him in, create a dangly garden mobile, see some babies in the park through the windows and take a look at bedtime rituals for babies.
