Get children back to nature and experience all of its benefits. Led by our expert team of education rangers, Bush School will inspire love for the natural world through games, bushcraft activities, stories and more. Bush School is a unique ten week nature play program for children aged 2.5 - 5 years.

Learn more about Bush School and they theory behind nature play at our Bush School sites. Parents will also have the opportunity to receive training and advice on how to nurture and mentor their own nature child.
