Be active, make friends and have fun at GSAC PlayZone

The Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre has opened up a whole new world for parents and children with the launch of the GSAC Playzone.

The GSAC Playzone provides endless development and growth opportunities as children play and learn with safe equipment in a stimulating setting.

The program is designed and structured with the main emphasis on fun and movement, and allows children to develop many essential physical attributes such as gross motor functions, fine motor functions, balance, strength, coordination and flexibility.

All children benefit from being active every day, and physical activity keeps them fit and healthy and also benefits their social, emotional and intellectual development.

There are so many reasons why this sort of play is beneficial to children. From a health perspective, it can improve muscle and bone development, coordination and movement, improve sleeping patterns and reduce the risk of unhealthy weight gain and diabetes.

From a social perspective it encourages teamwork and leadership, and helps kids develop friendships. Emotionally, these types of play also increase confidence and happiness and improve self-esteem and the ability to manage anxiety and stress.

GSAC Playzone is suitable for children aged between 18 months to school-ready. Children aged 18 months to three years must be accompanied by a parent/carer while children aged three to school ready may attend without a parent/carer.

The emphasis at Playzone is on having a fun and productive skill development. Playzone offers casual classes for $6 and registration is $30 per family.
