BUSH KINDY
Bush Kindy is a nature play program for 4-8 year olds that operates entirely outdoors in a variety of bush and beach settings. Nature Play Academy is pleased to announce we will be running our Bush Kindy program in Term 3 at Alithia! Our program has been carefully planned to inspire a connection to nature, build resilience and promote creativity. Children are supported and guided by a qualified early childhood teacher and 2 experienced nature play mentors.
Bush Kindy will provide young children with opportunities to play in natural spaces - learning on and from the land. Sessions include: stories to inspire imagination; loose parts play, creative arts, fire-craft, whittling, bush walking, foraging and reflective journaling.
A handbook will be provided upon enrolment - detailing the aims of our bush kindy, our programming style and the inclusion of risky play within the program.
TERM 3 SESSIONS
Bush Kindy runs for 5 hours every Thursday from 9.00am - 2.00pm, over 7 weeks from the 16th of August during the school term. There will be an initial free session that will coincide with Alithia’s play date and will run for an hour on the 9th of August. This is a good opportunity for your child to see if this style of outdoor learning/play is for them and is also a chance for families to meet the facilitators and settle their child into the space.
