What is a nature playgroup?

A nature playgroup offers children and carers a vibrant outdoor experience, fostering creativity, curiosity and social skills through unstructured play in nature

 

Our programs are fully outdoors run by early childhood educators who are passionate about play in nature

 

Unlike other play groups, we are completely outside (with undercover areas available). We have fires, play in mud, make nature inspired craft, storytelling amongst the trees, explore native flora and fauna and so much more

 

Where and When?

Our Playgroup is for parents and carers of children from 0-5yrs to attend together

Tuesdays – Dapto (Don’s Farm at back of Avondale Rd)

Wed & Fri – Mt Keira (Girl Guides Camp)

 

Cost and payment options

The term program is discounted at $25/session and priority is given to children enrolled in the Term Program. You are required to pay upfront in full upon booking.

 

Other options include a half term option and casual bookings, which are dependent on our Term Booking numbers and Student:Teacher ratio.

 

Do i have to pay for my baby?

No! All babes in arms are free with an attending sibling. If however, you wish to come and bring only your newborn to meet other mummies and connect with them in the outdoors, you will need to book and pay for a spot online

NDIS

NDIS bookings are invoiced privately to your plan manager or to you directly if you are self managed. Please defer payment if you are covered under NDIS and email us the details of the plan to bushmagicadventures@gmail.com

 

Our ratio for NDIS children is higher and we have a full inclusion policy to send you to outline all the ways we provide extra support for your child. We therefore invoice you at the NDIS rate ($30/hr) under Capacity Building Funding to ensure we give higher levels of support for your child. We also have 1:1 support workers who have been trained under therapy supervision and have thorough knowledge of forest schooling AND Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, cerebal paulsy, PDA profile and other disabilites. If your child needs 1:1 support and you have core funding, you can request this seperately via email.
