Zippy's Kings Park Adventurers

Bush learning for little nature lovers ages 3 - 5 years!

Join Zippy the dragonfly and his bushland friends on a journey of discovery in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park!

This outdoor early learning program aims to inspire children’s empathy, curiosity and connection to nature, which growing research suggests has life-long benefits for both health and wellbeing and the conservation of our environment. 

Each week, during the 45-minute session, your child’s confidence, knowledge and connection to nature will grow as they enjoy learning about native animals and plants, Noongar culture and caring for the environment.  Nature-based experiences cultivates little imaginations, inviting children to follow their wonderings through art in nature, storytelling, exploration and play. 

The program is designed over four 8-week terms which build on your child’s developing skills and knowledge to create a holistic learning journey that promotes problem-solving skills and resilience and allows them to gain a deeper understanding of the world around them. Alternatively, each term is created to be an enjoyable stand-alone learning experience.

Term 1: I am an Explorer of the World
Term 2: Animals, Plants and Me
Term 3: Caring for the Country I Play On
Term 4: I am a Citizen of the Bush 

Brought to you by Kings Park and supported by Rio Tinto.
