Spending time in nature

Mundarda Child Care Centre has a Bush Kinder Program. Bush Kinder provides opportunities for young children to spend time in natural areas around Armadale, discovering the animals, plants, rocks, soil and other features of the bush. The excursions develop many skills related to:

  • Language and vocabulary 
  • Gross and fine motor skills
  • Empathy
  • Helping the environment and
  • Working together

Bush Kinder experiences develop a sense of place in young children and can foster a life-long sense of environmental stewardship.
