The Kings Park Home Delivery project helps keep your kids entertained and feeling connected to nature and our community.

The project aims to keep kids connected with nature, promote resilience and encourage positive feelings about the world around us.

The first phase of the project provided 'I like ...' adventures for each day of the April 2020 school holidays. Activities and resources covered topics such as 'I like drawing animal cartoons', 'I like trees' and 'I like egg hunts' and focus children’s attention on the following themes:

  • Nature
  • Gratitude
  • Community

Daily videos featuring Kings Park staff, activity sheets and other resources were published in a closed Facebook group and on the Kings Park website during April. An art competition and a 'snail mail' campaign where kids decorate their mailboxes and receive messages and packages by old-fashioned post were features of the project. Families were invited to interact and share their experiences online in this community-focused project.

The best educational and childhood research was applied by the Kings Park Education team in creating these resources.

The second phase of this project 'Schools Teacher Resources' supports learning with educational resources for parents, teachers and students. It focuses on Noongar culture, creativity, sustainability and STEM.

Security and privacy

The Kings Park Home Delivery Facebook group is a closed group. The identity of new members will be verified before access is provided to join the group. Approved members will be encouraged to share photos and experiences with other group members.

'Group rules' are clearly stated and must be adhered to for the security and privacy of all members. The personal details of members will not be shared outside the group or used for any other purpose.

For families who do not wish to use Facebook, all resources and information will be available on the Kings Park website.

COVID-19

The wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our number one priority during the current COVID-19 situation. We are closely monitoring and responding to Government health advice and putting extra measures in place to protect our staff, volunteers and visitors.
