The Bush Play Group (Bush School) is a new program at the Australian Botanic Garden At Mount Annan. Join experienced Early Years Nature Educators from the garden who will facilitate play based activities and nature experiences. Nature Play programs like the Bush Play Group aim to help children grow and develop with and in nature. Children will climb, dig, explore, build, engage their senses, discover and play in the new nature play area.
Each week’s program is a combination of led activities games and stories combined with supervised free play time in the garden’s nature play area.
