Join us in term 1 for a bush playgroup program (9 weeks) at Gresswell Forest Wildlife Reserve, situated on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People. Gresswell Forest Wildlife Reserve is just that, a forest in suburbia! Located in Melbourne’s north-east suburb of Macleod. This forest location provides children and their families the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature as it’s bush all the way!

Our Bush Playgroup incorporates hands-on, child-led learning and sensory play through a range of nature-based activities, nature crafts, storytelling, songs and a bush walk exploring.

Eco Explorers bush playgroups are facilitated by qualified and experienced nature play educators (read more about our team here). This bush playgroup is facilitated by Ting who has a background in performer arts and is an avid storyteller who loves working with children and their families.

Our program has been developed to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through movement 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.

Bush playgroup is an all weather outdoor playgroup so you need to make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing.  Our playgroup will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong wind.

Session 1. Bush Babies: ages: 0 – 2  years

Session 2. Tawny Toddlers: ages 2 – 4 years

Bush Kids Forest School : ages 3.5 – 6 years (BOOK HERE) 

*Both programs are the same but run to cater for the specific age groups. Siblings can attend any age groups.

*Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
