Nature Connect

Nature Connect is Lobethal Community Kindergartens off site bush Kindy Program. The pilot program was launched with outdoor kindy week being held at Bushland Park in Term 2, 2015, and continues with weekly full day sessions being held in the park. Building strong, sustainable reciprocal relationships with families, local community groups, children, staff and the park itself are seen as intergral to the program. Handbook can be found by clicking in the BUSH KINDY HANDBOOK link under the reports tab.

Our 2017 program which will launch in week 1 of term 2 will be structured with each group (frogs and bugs) spending one full day in the bush a fortnight. Now that we are back to full time, this will have full time staff at the park one day a week. We are looking forward to getting back out into the bush, connecting to the places and spaces with a new group of children. The depth of learning and connection to our world this adds to our nature based program is amazing.
