The Thursday morning session will be our popular “Explorer” session which is an offsite session, based on the bush block located on the left hand side of the community oval. At times we will also explore the grounds of the primary school. The children are encouraged to explore the natural space and this might include bush craft, climbing trees and challenging their gross motor muscles, identifying the abundance of animal scat, wild life, bird and flowers, observing the changes around us and connecting to country.
All enrolments are managed through Nillumbik Shire Council.
