What is the bush kinder program?
The Bush Kinder Program is an educational system that implements the notion of learning through experience and creating new opportunities for children to engage with outdoor free play. Outdoor free play which provides children with the time to explore, play and learn, allows children to make sense of the world and their place within it.
As the world continues to change with the progression of technology and shifts in our home environments, our younger generations experience less outdoor and active play. The lives of children today are significantly different to what things looked like a mere generation ago. Our fear for children’s safety has limited children’s ability to roam freely and consequently limited their exposure to risk.
Including the Bush Kinder Program at Arkie, ensures that children have nature rich, meaningful experiences with the natural environment and a more autonomous learning experience
