Fun for the family: What’s on at Westfield Helensvale?
Shopping aside, there’s plenty more for the whole family to do at Westfield Helensvale – dance sessions, arts and craft, plus the chance for parents to roam the centre child-free for as long as you need. Here’s just a peek at our scheduled activities and services for the week. Come along and perhaps even make one of these a regular in your diary.
What would you do with a spare hour of kid-free bliss? Every Monday, drop off your kids at our Kids Camp (outside Target) between 9:30am and 2pm and receive one hour of free childcare. And rest assured your kids are in good hands. At Kids Camp, Gaven Early Learning Centre delivers a professional childcare service for our customers and their children aged 2 to 8 years. Learn more here.
If you can’t take advantage of Mummy Mondays, we’re also offering affordable childcare with the passionate team at Gaven Early Learning Centre. If you’re doing the groceries or on the hunt for a special gift and want to do so solo, bring your young ones to our Fun for $5 supervised play area opposite Target. The cost is just $5 per hour, per child and the service is available Monday to Friday, 9:30am-2pm.
There’s a free dance class happening at Westfield Helensvale at 10am-2pm every Tuesday, during the school term. If you happen to know a little someone with serious moves to show off, bring them along to the stage at The Playground. Once there, they can shake and twist to their heart’s content.
Keep little hands busy with free arts and crafts activities every Wednesday from 10am-12pm during the school term. There’s zero prep to do on your part, simply show up to The Playground, where your child will be given the supplies to create their next masterpiece. It’s a reliable way to get kids to express their creativity in a friendly and encouraging environment. Plus, our host for this event, Bazil Grumble, has a wealth of experience in inspiring imagination and confidence in kids. Join the Free Kids Arts & Craft Activities Facebook group and learn more.
Kids Theatre Games
Every Thursday 10am - 11am.
Join us in The Playground each Thursday during the school term for theatre games and costume play! Kids can dress us as a swashbuckling pirate, a princess or anything else they can dream up in their imagination while they participate in educational and fun theatre games. Kids can use props, make sound effects and participate in a performance on our outdoor stage. The games are aimed at children from 2+ years of age.
There's a world of fun lying just beyond the foodcourt! Grab a coffee (perhaps a sweet treat!), enjoy a chat with your friends and watch the kids entertain themselves for hours...
