1. Art & Craft
Our weekly art & craft activities give kids a sense of achievement and allow them to take pride in their work which builds confidence. Making art is a great, safe way to discover that it’s okay to make mistakes and that getting things ‘wrong’ can lead you to a whole new idea. By introducing arts and crafts to the kids and involving them in such activities in schools, you will invest in building their cognitive, physical, and social development.
2. Trip to Forest School
It is important for children to have some time of uninterrupted, boundary-free play, and that’s exactly what they get from the Jungle School experience. We spend time outdoors with our children, using what nature has given us as learning materials.
Children who attend our Forest School program are given the time and space to learn naturally, through real, hands-on experiences. Forest School allows children the opportunity to spend 3 hours in the bush, without their parents or caregivers. This helps them develop a sense of independence and provides both an opportunity and a chance to build resilience, confidence, and self-esteem.
At Forest School, the children engage all their senses. They experiment, discover and explore the real world around them. These engaging, open – ended experiences can support their creative learning. Their play is investigative and the natural environment ignites their natural curiosity to learn.
Children are encouraged to solve problems and to engage in teamwork, as they play and learn outdoors, in all types of weather; rain, hail and shine! Children that would not necessarily do well or cope in a highly structured indoor classroom environment, thrive in an outdoor one.
Thank you for your interest in our program.
We look forward to spending the kinder years with your child and family, and hope you enjoy seeing your child’s knowledge and world expand.
It gives us enormous pleasure to welcome our new families to Kinder Koala. It is a privilege to be working with you and supporting your child as they take their first steps towards independence in a more formal educational setting.
