Join us for some bush play and adventures at Laurimar Creek Conservation Reserve. Laurimar Creek Conservation Reserve boasts wetlands, majestic river gums, a seasonal creek, plenty of climbing opportunities and plenty of bushlands to explore and play in, this location is a children’s nature play delight!
There will be some mud kitchen play, kids busy cooking up a storm, mixing and crushing ochre and doing some artwork, a story and song and a bushwalk learning all about the amazing flora and fauna that we find along the way, some games and cubby building!
Our Doreen bush kindy is led by Adam, one of the founders of Eco Explorers who is highly skilled in many bush survival skills. He spent his childhood living and camping in the bush; climbing mountains, exploring rivers, learning to fish, track, make fires and to simplify… just ‘being’ at one in nature. Adam now hopes to share his childhood & adult experiences with the next generation to inspire a deep connection with nature. He has a background in Outdoor Education and is a trained level 3 forest school leader.
Our program is also a time for parents to disconnect from their busy lives (and technology) and re-connect with their child in nature. This time is as much for you as it is for your child. Our bush kids’ program brings together a community of like-minded parents who are supportive and welcoming.
It’s an all-weather outdoor program so you need to make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing. Children must have closed footwear when walking in the bush, wet weather gear, plenty of snacks and water and a change of clothes. Our playgroup will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong wind.
Ages: 2 – 8 years (siblings under 14 months are welcome to attend for free).
*Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
