KIN Village (school holiday program) will become an outdoor Makers’ Space this Spring. A space where children will use teamwork to connect cubbies and shelters with contraptions made from pulleys, ropes and wood created using the ultimate resource – their imagination! Tools to tinker with, games to play and new friends to meet is what kids will find at KIN Village.
KIN Village is a ‘drop and leave’ school holiday program for 6-12 year olds, that allows children to freely explore their world and community with the support of Nature Educators and Mentors.
Each session runs from 9am to 4pm and costs $79 per child. This cost includes morning tea. Book in for one day or come for multiple sessions, each day is a new adventure.
Please note that children must have turned 6 years of age to attend KIN Village.
We say ‘YES’ to kids and provide them with opportunities to play, build nature awareness, and develop resilience. We do this through hut building, carpentry, nature exploration, community games, art and music.
Our Nature Educators resource the space with objects and tools children might need to live out their adventure. They provide mentoring that observes and listens to children in order to guide suggestions, resources and skill building to help them achieve their goals. The program is designed to follow children’s natural energy levels throughout the day so that children work as a team without feeling forced or held back. Children feel they are truly heard and acknowledged and are therefore more open to be guided into nature connection by our mentors.
We have an average staff to child ratio of 1:7, with group sizes capped between 28 – 32 children. All staff have a Working with Children Check, with at least two staff at each session being first aid trained and at least one with water rescue qualifications (where applicable). The Lead Facilitators are qualified teachers.
