Our indoor learning environments are purposefully set up to support children in experiencing a sense of belonging and security. Spaces are flexible and are shaped through shared observations and reflections. A variety of open-ended materials are provided to trigger a sense of wonder, foster development, promote learning, and provoke investigations and intentional teaching moments.
Our outdoor environment works hand-in-hand with our indoor environments to provide an effective indoor/outdoor program. Both spaces are viewed as of equal importance in the children’s development, regardless of their age.
Bush Kindy is a wild playspace created by nature. It is a place where child-led play, curiosity, experimentation and enquiry-based learning are fostered.
Meet our resident chickens. Housed in a large coop beside our vegetable garden, our chickens are much loved for their clucking, feeding and fresh eggs.
Greensleeves and greenthumbs
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme—find them all in our herb and vegetable garden, along with tomatoes, beans and other seasonal plants. The children enjoy watching how food and plants grow from their own magic beans.
What’s all the buzz about? We’ve got a native stingless beehive and some friendly bees working together to show the children where their honey comes from. The bees also help out in the gardens of our playspaces.
The children love to zip around on our paved bike track. There’s plenty of tricycles and helmets for the children and even more space for safe riding, as well as a repurposed petrol bowser to fill up those imaginary petrol tanks. Vroom!
Sandpits and a mud kitchen
There’s plenty of sand for playing and digging in our sandpits, as well as a mud kitchen where children can perfect the art of baking the perfect mud pie!
Swings, slides and much more
Our outdoor play space also features traditional swings and slides, and an obstacle course that changes on a daily basis to provide children with a unique challenge every day.
