Nature Play at Fairy Hills
At Fairy Hills we offer a weekly 2.5 hour nature experience for our 4's, where time is spent experiencing our natural world. The program takes place in our local bush habitats in the Ivanhoe area, within walking distance to the kinder and is a perfect opportunity for parent involvement.
A forest or bush kindergarten experience takes place almost exclusively in the outdoors, celebrating the natural world, and actively facilitates children's discovery, enquiry, curiosity, exploration, appreciation, sharing and of course, learning and playing. Whatever the weather, children are encouraged to engage in the outdoor play, using natural materials and tools in their learning.
The nature experience is a special and valued aspect of our educational program for our 4's and adds further fun and creative play to the child’s total kinder experience. The program also recognises the place the bush has in Australian folklore and the significance the land and the natural world holds in Aboriginal culture.
