Join us weekly in term 4 2023 for our Bush Kindy Kids program (11 sessions) at Gresswell Forest Wildlife Reserve situated on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people. Located in Melbourne’s north-east suburb of Bundoora. This Australian bush location provides children and their families the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature, learning about our diverse Australian flora and fauna with our experienced nature learning facilitators.
Our Bush 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 program is run by Kirsty, a qualified primary school teacher and nature play advocate.
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.
