Bush School for Kids 2.5 - 5years

Bush School is a unique nature play program for children aged 2.5 - 5 years. This special week-by-week program, led by Centennial Parklands’ expert Education Rangers, brings urban children and their parents back to nature in the heart of Centennial Park. Bush School will get your kids moving, creating, and thinking in a stimulating outdoor environment every week, giving them a chance to explore, discover and learn at their own pace. By the end of Term 3, they will have gained all the benefits of Nature Connection and Nature Play by developing their creativity, confidence, attention, and sense of responsibility.

During Bush School in Term 3, children will learn and play in nature whilst exploring a winter theme, including whale migration, microbat hibernation, cordage making, fire, stories and song. If you want to join for the whole term, you can book into Monday, Tuesday or Thursday, which are bookable for 10 sessions. On Fridays, you can decide from week to week by booking a single drop-in session ticket.
