Seedlings Nature School

Join experienced Early Years Nature Educators from the Garden who will facilitate play-based activities and nature experiences with you and your little one. This special program aims to help children grow and develop with and in nature. Children will climb, dig, explore, build, engage their senses, discover and play! Each week’s program is a combination of nature-based activities, games and stories, combined with supervised free-play time in the garden’s nature play area.

Children must be accompanied by an adult carer. 

This is the recommended way to attend Seedlings Nature School. By joining us for a full term, your child:​
  • forms a relationship with the space and looks forward to visiting 'their nature place'
  • learns more about their body and capabilities by building on skills, with the help of our Educators
  • observes changes in the environment over time, sparking curiosity and interest in the natural world
  • makes friends with other Seedlings
...and it's the best value! (8 weeks for the price of 7)

Classes can also be booked weekly if not sold out prior.

"The staff and the activities really hit the right mark! Perfect length, variety, and I loooved encouraging an appreciation and respect for nature. My daughter was really engaged and interested, and she had a wonderful time! Such a great morning, thank you so much!" - Seedlings parent
