Currawong Kids Nature Club
Weekly nature connection workshops for home educators
Are you a wild one?
Come and share your natural curiosity with us next term.
Wander through the trees, learn new games, practice your sneaking skills to get a closer look at animals, learn how to create and use fire, listen for the language of the birds, follow tracks, learn where to find food, paint with ochre and discover more about the plants, birds and creatures that share the city with us.
Aimed at 5 – 11 year olds, Currawong Kids is a nature club run for full and part time home edders. This child-led program is punctuated with fun games and activities and allows each participant to follow their curiosity and deepen their knowledge, awareness and connection to themselves and the world around them.
We run an all weather program. Bring a backpack with water, rain jacket, hat, lots of snacks and a picnic lunch for the end. Parent participation is optional, and while younger siblings may also attend for free, they will be the responsibility of their parents/guardians and the activities will be aimed at the older kids.

On our days at Currawong Kids we are immersed in nature. The environment is created not only by the wildness of Darebin parklands, but my Mel who has in a short time created a tribe where everyone is valued and heard. The program is child led, where the curiosities of the moment are explored in partnership by all.
Mel’s enthusiasm is contagious – my children adore her and we look forward to exploring and learning more with her. – Kim, parent
