The Beach Kinder Program is offered to all children at Black Rock Pre-School. It is a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn through their local environment. It is an educational program exclusively outdoors, conducted along the Black Rock foreshore and Bay Trail. Children are encouraged to play, explore and learn in the natural environment and benefit from using only what nature provides. Outdoor learning improves children’s health, helps them engage with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. The key feature is for children to spend regular, long periods of unstructured time in natural environments.
