10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us at Pound Bend Reserve in Warrandyte for our Bush kids program where we will be going on a bird bush walk and discovering the amazing diversity of colour and sound that exists at Pound Bend Park. The children will learn about bird habitats and how birds use colour and sound for such things as camouflage and communication. Then on return, the group will be building their own nests, just like birds!
This Bush Kids workshop is run by Jessie, who has a Bachelor Degree in Conservation and Biodiversity and has studied and worked in countries such as Sumatra (with Orangutans) and with communities and schools in Madagascar.
Our program is based on the leading research from world-renowned and leading Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Angela Hanscom, author of Balanced and Barefoot 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 learning and life skills, both physically and emotionally. As Angela illustrates, “too many of today’s children miss out on the full sensory richness offered beyond the walls of the classroom or home.”
Ages: 3- 10 years
*Parents must stay and supervise their children at all times.
