Nature Kindy

Tuesday 9-2pm Elanora

Wednesday 9-2pm Currumbin

Thursday 9 - 2pm Elanora

3-5 years

Families can drop off children for these sessions.

Each session is based on the ideas and curiosities that arise from children’s interests as the program is child led and inquiry based so each day will look a little different. This may include bushland exploration, tree climbing, play with shelters and rope, bushcraft, nature craft, muddy play, and so much more. Possibilities are endless. The Cottonwood educators will lead the nature session, through a predictable but flexible routine for young children which will include, greetings on the mat, sharing of special stories and activities, safety discussions, free play and exploration, morning tea and finish off with circle time of songs.

Children will have opportunities to engage in nature craft, earth art, stories and mindfulness experiences. They will explore the natural surrounding, learn about local flora and fauna and how these link to Indigenous ways of being and knowledge. Together we will look after the land on which we play and learn, developing a great sense of respect and care and taking on roles as nature warriors. The program offers diverse experiences to develop physical skills and engage in risky play in safe ways. We use real tools, build shelters and go on adventures!
