Bush Kindy Explorers is an exciting pre-school nature based, educational program that is has been developed by GC Child Care Centres on the Gold Coast. It introduces children to nature and our unique Australian environment from our gold sand beaches to native bush-land. The program recognises the significance of land in Aboriginal culture and encourages children to connect with and appreciate nature while learning how to work together and take turns in a small group environment.
Studies have shown children who regularly engage in nature based play develop higher physical, social, and emotional skills. There are also significant health benefits that include improved cognitive function, increased creativity, kinder peer interaction, reduced attention deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms and reduced rates of aggression.
Bush Kindy Explorers is play that is led by the children, with support from our passionate educators, allowing children to take reasonable risks in a supervised environment. All activities are risk-assessed to ensure your child is safe while having fun. Our educators are fully qualified and their passion for nature, our environment and sustainability is contagious. Bush Kindy Explorers is a fun educational experience that your child will remember for years to come.
If your pre-schooler is a little adventurer they will love attending GC Child Care Centres and heading out each week on Bush Kindy Explorers. We have three convenient locations on the Gold Coast and each of our centres has a strong focus on nature-play, our environment and sustainability.
