Bush Knowing Forest School

Fostering the future stewards of the earth by offering nature immersion sessions for young children in Brisbane.

Nature Immersion Sessions

Bush Knowing Forest School was born from my passion as an early childhood teacher to engage and immerse children in the natural environment.

During my 20+ year career in early childhood, I’ve taught at the local kindergarten as well as trained my Creche & Kindergarten colleagues how to take children into nature to help them enhance their own curriculum.

I hold a Diploma of Education and a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). As a registered teacher, I have a Positive Exemption card and current First Aid.

About Us

We believe

  • being outside and engaging with nature has wide ranging benefits for children and adults of all ages
  • adventurous play builds strong  bodies, develops imagination, creativity, and problem solving skills. It also teaches children to assess risks and grow to understand the importance of the natural world.
