Outdoor activities in a natural environment have been proven to be extremely beneficial to children's health, wellbeing and development.
Originating in Scandinavia in the 1950's, the forest preschool approach has been used as a framework for nature education, where children are encouraged to play in, and learn from the natural world around them.
We offer children a variety of opportunities to interact with animals and the natural world around them in safe and enriching environments.
Kindergarten at WCK
At WCK we offer a pathway to school from 15 months. Children learn through play, exploration and investigation in a mix of environments at our WCK centre, within the Woombye community and the Green House farm.
Our Kindergarten program is aligned with the Queensland Kindergarten learning framework and the Early Years Learning Framework. and is guided by the approved Kindergarten curriculum.
WCK Explorers work with natural tools and materials and use their imaginations to create works of art. They learn to weave, paint and make and create things with clay, guided and supported by early learning childhood educators.
