Bush Kindy

“South Australian children are spending less time outside in nature than at any other time in our history, leading to increased rates of childhood obesity, depression and behavioural disorders and growing disconnected from natural world.” - Nature Play SA

Bush Kindy children participate in even weeks of terms 2 and 3, on Mondays. The bush location is right next door. Children are able to totally immerse their learning in nature. Research has indicated children who participate in unstructured play outdoors boost their problem solving skills and are happier which promotes ‘getting along’ skills, health and wellbeing.
