    Banksia Babies – our new nature program for toddlers!


It’s never too early to enjoy nature! Banksia Buddies, the wildly successful nature play program for pre-schoolers, now has a spin-off program for toddlers.

Nature is of critical importance to kids during their early years. This post outlines some of the key benefits parks and nature provide children, while the Healthy Kids website provides oodles of great tips and ideas about getting outdoors and keeping active.


Our new program

Banksia Babies is new to Centennial Parklands. In this special program, parents and baby (9 months to 2 years) are guided through movement songs and finger plays followed by discovery play with a nature treasure basket and sensory tubs.

More information (dates, times, location) can be found on the Centennial Parklands website or you can head straight to the online booking site to reserve your spot now!
