Zippy's Bush Kindy

Big adventures for little nature lovers aged 3 to 5 years!

Join Zippy Dragonfly on an early learning adventure in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park or Perth Hills Discovery Centre.  Choose from either location with one 45-minute session per week over an 8-week term. This interactive program will ignite your child’s curiosity and strengthen their connection to nature!

Each term provides new experiences that nurture children’s confidence to explore, question and make discoveries. The program is also designed to reflect different themes, the changing seasons, and introduce new skills through nature play activities. Watch your child bloom as they learn at their own pace and grow in confidence and knowledge, with time to play, create, share stories and care for the natural world.
