School Holiday Programs

 

The Nature School Inc aims to provide programs for all ages and the school holiday programs open up the doors to children of school age (5 - 12 years old). Each program maintains the philosophies of The Nature School and will vary in location. On any day there will be at least 2 educators, with up to 14 children.

 

Is your child curious about nature, forests and climbing trees? Does your child need some time away from a desk this holiday? We will undertake activities like exploring nature, bush craft and weaving, map and compass reading, tree climbing, whittling and so much more! The mixed age group environment supports children of all ages to build on their empathy, social and communication skills.

While each day has a theme, children are always free to lead their own play and interests throughout the day.
