Bush Kinder

Wattle Hill Kindergarten’s new bush kinder program offers an exciting nature play experience for all children enrolled in our 4-5 year old program.

Our bush kinder program is held in beautiful Wattle Park, adjacent to our kindergarten, and draws inspiration from the forest schools and nature kindergartens of Europe and Scandinavia.

Children enrolled in our 4-5 year old kindergarten program participate in one session of bush kinder each fortnight, where they explore, discover, learn and connect with nature.  There are no toys, just the natural materials found in the park.

Outdoor play in natural environments has wonderful benefits for children’s health, development and wellbeing. It can boost confidence, concentration, sense of wonder, creativity, maths skills and literacy. Bush kinder also helps children learn more about nature and develop positive relationships with the natural world.
