Nature preschool Small Groups SSP reading readiness Early Years Learning Framework
Preparing children for school ~ and life
The Wonderlings Nature Kinder program is designed for preschool or home schooled children aged from 4 to 6 years. It's aim is to help prepare children for future learning through promoting their innate curiosity, inspiring creativity, empowering a love of the natural world and most importantly respecting all people with mindful kindness.
Wonderlings Kinder embraces the forest school philosophy. Adults provide a safe, risk managed outdoor environment where learning through play is child-led and initiated. Wonderlings experience the outdoors for up to two hours every day, in all weather and seasons. The rest of the day is spent at our Sunrise Beach home base where early phonemic awareness incorporating the SSP Approach to reading and spelling, math concepts, art and science discoveries are inter-woven through every day experiences. Community engagement and participation is also an integral part of the Wonderlings Kinder program where all opportunities for making connections and being of service to others is valued.
