There is something magical that happens when we leave the four walls of our classroom and head into the natural environment as part of our bush kinder program.
We have long found that the learning that can be had when in the presence of nature is unmatched. There are countless opportunities to build, story tell, count, care for plants, use our imagination when viewing clouds or engaging in imaginative play in our bush cubbies.
We believe our Bush Kinder and Community Outing Program provides children with the opportunity to engage with and explore their local community. Outings can include visiting the local gardens or parks to collect materials and resources for art projects, walking to the local schools, local milk bar or supermarket to purchase items for a home cooked meal prepared by our children.
We usually set out on community outings and excursions using a walking school bus (walking to our destination) or our KingKids community outing bus.
We take advantage of the good weather when we can, so sometimes these excursions will be spontaneous and may occur at any time during the hours outlined on your annual permission form. We provide updates and share our learning activities via photos and videos on the app we use to communicate with parents, so you can follow all our adventures!
