10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for a morning of sensory play in nature Westerfolds Park in Templestowe where your child’s imagination is the limit as they get messy and creative in nature! Our Bush Play events include all our favourite bush playgroup activities where children have an opportunity to get crafty and take home their very own nature craft! Our workshop guarantees to be a child’s sensory delight as they immerse themselves in nature play, creativity and learning.
At Eco Explorers Bush Programs, we incorporate hands-on, child-led learning and sensory play through a range of nature-based activities, games, nature crafts, storytelling, songs and a bush walk focusing on movement, climbing and learning about the local flora and fauna.
This workshop includes: story, a song, bush walk learning about the local flora and fauna, nature craft activity making nature crowns and a mindfulness activity.
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.
This workshop is run by Kirsty, a qualified Primary School Teacher and Bush Playgroup Facilitator.
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 and are encourage to join in on the fun!
