At our centre, we cater for children from birth to five years and we are proud to be officially endorsed by Nature Play QLD.
All of our educators have embraced the bush kindy philosophy and we, as well as the children and families look forward to our sessions each week. Our journey started with the idea that we should be doing more to involve our children in natural play. We already have indoor/outdoor programs so were looking to include more play where children are making their own decisions and to also include more “risky play”. We now have a qualified “Forest School leader” and will be sending another educator this year to complete the training.
Our “Forest school Leader” is responsible for guiding the planning in the outdoors for the children at the centre and off site. The children are encouraged to use “loose parts” during play and families are involved in donating items for the children to use.
We allow children to grow and learn as they create, explore and make connections and care for the environment around them. Our hope for the future is that we have guided our children to grow into environmentally responsible adults.
