Join us for a weekly bush playgroup program where families gather to enjoy all the benefits that nature has to offer at our Family Nature Club funded by the City of Whittlesea.
The past two years have been tough for young children as they have missed out on important social interactions and families on opportunities to connect with local families. If you are looking for an activity for you and your child to do weekly outdoors that supports their development, learning and social skills and benefits your mental heath then we’d love for you to join our family nature club! We’re here to help you connect to your local community and to support you and your child to enjoy more time outdoors in nature at some of our favourite reserves within the City of Whittlesea. We provide a gentle rhythm to our facilitated playgroups with a focus on sensory play, storytelling, song, craft, learning, unstructured play and plenty of opportunities to build gross motor skills through climbing, balancing and movement.
Everyone is welcome at our Family Nature Clubs!
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.
It’s also a time for parents to disconnect from their busy lives (and technology) and re-connect with their child in nature. This time is as much for you as it is for your child. Our bush playgroups bring together a community of like-minded parents who are supportive and welcoming.
Ages: 0 – 5 years
*Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
