Birralee Bundaleer ‘Children Among the Trees’ Bush Kinder Program
At Nunawading Christian College’s Early Learning Centre, your child comes first. Our highly trained staff are experienced in early childhood and kindergarten education, ensuring the provision of a high-quality early childhood program for your child.
Sharing a campus with our school means children enjoy more learning opportunities at a younger age, including Bible, music, science, art, sport, LOTE (Mandarin). When it’s time to graduate to Prep, we find our students enjoy an easier transition as they’re already familiar with the teachers and environment of primary school.
Bush Kinder was developed in response to research that shows outdoor activities in a natural environment are extremely beneficial to children's health, wellbeing and development. Bush kinder is an education program that is set outdoors so children can connect with nature through play and exploration.
The Early Learning Centre staff are currently developing and implementing a Bible curriculum called Early Encounters with Jesus which will enable our children and educators to experience and learn more about Jesus in a fun, engaging and meaningful way.
