Seedlings Nature School

Seedlings Nature School is currently on hold for Term 3.

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. 

"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
