10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join us for a morning at Jells Park Bush Playgroup where your child can immerse themselves in hands-on, messy and fun sensory play in our mud kitchen! There will be a complete kitchen for baking mud pies, making potions and also a nature craft activity to take home. Our bush playgroup program incorporates a range of nature-based activities, nature crafts, storytelling, songs and a bushwalk focusing on movement, climbing and learning about the local flora and fauna. This bush playgroup will be run at Jells Park in Wheelers Hill.
Our program has been developed to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through climbing, balancing, walking 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.
Bush playgroup is an all weather outdoor playgroup so you need to make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing. Children and adults must wear closed footwear when walking in the bush, sun hats, sunscreen, wet weather gear, plenty of snacks and water and even a change of clothes for those muddy play days! Our playgroup will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong wind.
Ages: 1 – 6 years (siblings under 12 months are welcome to attend for free).
*Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
