Join us for a bush playgroup program (10 weeks) at Newport Lakes Reserve in Newport situated in the traditional Country of the Bunurong People. Newport Lakes Reserve is the perfect inner west – city location for our bush playgroup as its home to an abundance of birdlife with its beautiful wetlands and lake.

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 Trudy, an early childhood educator with 15 years experience working in kindergarten with families and children from diverse backgrounds with diverse needs.

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 completely 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 and we may have to move locations if necessary.

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

Session 2. Tawny Toddlers: ages 2 – 4 years

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