Bush Kinder – Learning in Nature

At Wilson Street Kindergarten, we believe that children are naturally curious and are motivated to explore their natural environment. We recognise the importance of providing opportunities where children can engage in the outdoors and develop a further sense of self and a respect for the environment. This led us to introduce an outdoor program that is currently offered to our four year old groups.  At bush kinder the children take the lead in playing, exploring and learning in nature. The Wilson Street Kindergarten bush kinder program runs at a local park on a weekly basis. In conjunction with the staff, the children set a boundary for their play. The children have access to limited resources through the Bush Kinder Box, such as sketchbooks, pencils, binoculars and bug catchers. The children develop play with materials that they find in nature increasing creativity, divergent thinking skills, collaboration with others and exploration.
