First of all we were greeted by the teacher Lee-Anne, she is wonderful with the children and so calm. She allows them to explore, experiment and be hands on while educating them at the same time.
The children went on a bush walk to look for treasures! I love the enthusiasm and excitement of the children as they find a rock, stick, nuts or what ever it may be to put in their bucket of treasures. Touching, feeling, using their imagination as to what their finds could be.
After our walk we headed back to the Lodge where the children got to play, paint using the objects they found, dig in the sand pit and explore the sensory tray. You can see their little minds ticking over while they are playing, problem solving and it is fascinating to watch them learn.
We also listen to stories about nature and sang songs so the program has a good balance of different activities.
This is an wonderful nature based program and there should be more of them out there as the best learning can take place outdoors in nature.
