Bush Kindy

Pioneered by Suncoast Little Learners, Bush Kindy is an innovative program where our Little Learners explore the bush, squelch in the mud, chase lizards, build cubbie houses and create pretend fireplaces.

How it began

Bush Kindy grew out of our regular trips to the College Bush Chapel, where the children would have morning tea. We then realised how much the children loved the adventure, the bush, the mud and the insects. Now Bush Kindy is the thing the children look forward to most at Little Learners

Where is Bush Kindy?

We don't have to travel far because Suncoast Little Learners is located in the heart of Suncoast Christian College and extensive native bushland within the College grounds.

 No excursions, additional costs or special transport arrangements - just a short stroll for the children as once they have filled their back packs and make their way through the College grounds and down to the forest.
