Work Experience

As part of our growing commitement to contribute for a wider community of ' Nature Explorers' we are keen to share our experiences. We are willing to facilitate the development of 'Nature Explorers' program in other schools, and spread the word about the numerous benefits gained through playing and learning outside in nature. 

To assist with sharing our program and knowledge, we will be running a work experience program for those interested in being part of the Nature Explorers program.

To maintain the integrity of the program and to minimise disruption to the  children the following needs to be consider:

  • 1 work experience participants will be selected to participate one day a week 

  • Work experience placements will only take place during terms 2,3 and 4 to allow the children to settle into the program

  • Work experience placements are open to all applicants, however, there will be a selection process including an interview to ensure an appropriate fit for the staff and the children and to maximise the benefit to the wider community


Selection process

-   All applicants will be required to complete the online work experience application form.  

- All applicants will have an interview

"My experience as a nature explorer volunteer has been a highlight in my 37 year career as an early childhood educator.

I feel privileged to have observed children who are learning to take calculated risks, problem solve, use teamwork and collaborate with their community with the aim to understand and care for our natural environment. Watching the children climb trees, roll down hills, use real tools and dance in the rain reignited the wonderful memories of my childhood. 

Sofia and Kelly are phenomenal educators who show respect for each child's decisions and abilities. Children are learning at every opportunity, through every decision and through every discovery and there is not a single toy in sight. Nature explorers become confident, caring, capable and resilient learners who feel a sense of belonging to the group, their community and to nature.

Reflecting on this experience has given me renewed passion and inspiration to spread the nature explorers vision and philosophy. I wish every child could be a nature explorer, and every educator could feel the joy of sharing this rich learning experience in their career."
