How we are different
Actively utilising the outdoors as a classroom builds children’s confidence, character, trust and resilience, as they develop their understandings of the interdependence between land, people, plants and animals.
Nature Kinder provides children with a beautiful opportunity to flourish as they explore a whole new environment for themselves, making sure they feel safe, secure and supported throughout.
We appreciate this may be the first time you’ve entrusted your child to others outside of family, and we take that responsibility seriously. Your child’s contentment is our utmost priority and we work closely with parents and guardians to ensure there’s a smooth and comfortable transition.
Group programming 2023
There are two Nature Kinder groups to choose from in 2023.
These groups provide 15 hours of three-year-old kinder education, consisting of three 5-hour sessions per week.
Feel free to choose the group that works best for your child and your family.
Additional care options
Life’s busy, for all different reasons. To help the running of your week, The Farmhouse offers before and after kinder care to Nature Kinder children. Your child can attend The Farmhouse before kinder, and is then walked across to the Kindergarten building ready commence their kinder session. At the end of the kinder session, your child is walked back by our staff to The Farmhouse for a seamless day. Many children do one or both of the above and enjoy the security this offers.
