Bush kinder for Melbourne kids
Bush kinder takes inspiration from forest schools in Norway, where there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. Our Educators aim to bring the same philosophy to the banks of the Merri Creek. Our program allows children to learn when immersed in nature. It creates a space where children can investigate, explore, take risks and connect with the natural environment.
We currently offer bush kinder in two of our four-year-old kindergarten groups. Children enrolled in our bush kinder program spend one 3-hour session at our bush kinder location each week and two 6-hour sessions in our kinder rooms.
