Join us for our Term 4 2023 for our Beach Kids Forest School program (11 sessions) at Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary in Beaumaris.

Our Beach Kids Forest School program incorporates hands on learning, adventurous play, bush walks discovering local flora and fauna. We introduce children to bush survival and bushcraft skills, how to safely use tools, incorporate ecological and nature connection games and how to become custodians of the natural world through the development of their love of nature. Bush Kids prepares children for the next stage of their lives and is a natural progression after Bush Playgroup with Eco Explorers.

This Beach Kids program is led by Amy, a qualified Marine Biologist who has many years of experience running educational marine programs for children as well as been an avid snorkeler at Ricketts Point Sanctuary herself having grown up in the local area. We will spend time out on the rockpools and at the beach when the tide is low and weather conditions suit and may also spend a few weeks in the bush at Braeside Park.

Our program has been developed to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through climbing, balancing, walking and fine motor skills during our craft activities. Research clearly shows that the more time your child spends in nature, the better they are prepared for school, both physically and emotionally.
