4 Year Old: Bush Kinder

Bush Kinder is one of our 4-year-old programs.


As part of this session type, children spend four hours per week at Darebin Parklands, an ideal environment for them to learn with uninterrupted play in the bush using what nature has provided as learning materials.


Children have the opportunity to play in the rain, roll down grassy mounds, balance along fallen logs, get involved in dramatic play, find insects and draw with sticks in the ground.


Children doing Bush Kinder spend their remaining 11 hours a week at Home Kinder.
