Join us in term 2 for a bush playgroup program (11 weeks) at Lysterfield Lake Park situated on the traditional lands of the Boon Wurrung & Wurundjeri People. Rising from the southern foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, Lysterfield Park is the perfect place to explore nature with friends and is a great place to see kangaroos and wallabies along the trails.

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 Anne, a qualified early childhood educator.

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.  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 – 3 years
