A delight for all children

By Tara Whitsed

From skipping on a unicycle to levitating a suitcase, Luth Wolff from Solid State Circus will delight children in Nathalia.

Hosted by The G.R.A.I.N. Store, Regional Arts Victoria’s Connecting Places touring performance Big Tops and Tiny Tots will roll into town later this month.

G.R.A.I.N. Store secretary Olive Sage said they were excited to bring the performance to town, which was on in Nathalia’s Uniting Church hall.

With the performance using the magic of audience members, Nathalia and District Pre-school, Nathalia Community Early Learning Centre and Barmah Kindergarten and Occasional Care will help with the show.

‘‘We are excited to bring this quality art performance to local kindergartens and further develop the ongoing working partnerships we have established with them,’’ Ms Sage said.

Specifically designed for children aged three to six years, lessons in healthy eating, physical activity and teamwork are all seamlessly woven into the action-packed spectacle.

Aligned with the early years learning framework, the interactive performance has been used as a springboard to further learning by more than 200 venues.

Ms Sage said families not connected with the kindergartens could attend for $10 a family.

Big Tops and Tiny Tots is on August 30 from 11am at the Nathalia Uniting Church Hall, Bromley St, Nathalia. Book tickets online at trybooking.com or by phoning The G.R.A.I.N. Store on 0403756571.
