Join us in term 4 for our weekly Bush Kids program at Brimbank Park  situated on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people and located in Melbourne’s western suburb of Keilor East within mins to the Western Ring Road and alongside the Maribyrnong River. Native grasslands, plains and red gums line the Maribyrnong River and the parklands offer ideal settings for our Bush Kids sessions. We’ll also have a few special visits to Organ Pipes National Park down by the river.  

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.

Our Brimbank Park Bush Kids program is led by Penny, a certified level 3 Forest School leader, Primary School Teacher and certified children’s yoga instructor.

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.
