Bush Playgroup Hurstbridge – Monday

  • Bush Playgroup
     15/04/2024 - 24/06/2024
     10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us in term 2 for a bush playgroup program (10 weeks) in Hurstbridge situated in the traditional Country of the Wurundjeri People at Allwood Neighbourhood House in the beautiful lush gardens and other local bush reserves.

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) that are highly skilled and knowledgeable in the area that they work in. This playgroup is facilitated by Bush Playgroup Facilitator Maddi.

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.

Playgroup allows parents to disconnect from their busy lives (and technology) and re-connect with their child in nature.  The sessions are relaxed and child led and parents are encouraged to follow their child’s lead.

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.
