10:00 am - 11:30 am
Come and join us for a fun-filled morning of nature connection, rock pool exploration and learning, games, craft, story and song at Red Rocks Beach. The children will also learn about the amazing marine life that lives on Phillip Island and ways they can protect it.
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.
Our workshop facilitator Nadine is a qualified and experienced early childhood educator who has over 10 years of experience working as an Education Ranger at the Phillip Island Nature Park. She has extensive knowledge of the marine life and local habitats that she passionately shares with the next generation of environmental protectors.
With a low tide, the children will discover all the wonderful creatures that live amongst the rock pools and some interesting facts such as is sea lettuce really a lettuce? They will also be exploring the rock pool ecosystems, the various habitats that these animals call ‘home’ and also how litter affects the marine environment.
This is a great opportunity for children to spend time exploring, guided by a local expert on marine life.
Ages: 1– 7 years
