10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for a morning immersed outdoors, in the Australian bush and create memories and a deep connection to nature that will last forever! Kids will build bush cubbies, learn bush survival skills such as tracking for animals and even how to use real tools while making friends and building confidence in the outdoors. We’ll embark on many adventures through the bush where we learn, discover and explore our natural environment and it’s fascinating wildlife.
Our forest school aims to inspire creativity, a natural curiosity and enriching sensory play experience while seeking to follow their interests and a instill a love of learning. We also ensure that children learn to use their bodies so that they develop strength, good balance and coordination while learning to take safe risks with guidance and support from the educators.
This workshop is run by Alison, a primary school teacher and bush playgroup facilitator who has been running weekly outdoor workshops at Arthurs Seat for nearly a year. Alison is passionate about getting families outdoors, into nature and learning all about our natural environment.
Forest school is 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, sun hats, sunscreen, wet weather gear, plenty of snacks and water and a change of clothes. Our program will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong wind.
Ages: 4-12 years
