    Banksia Buddies – bigger, better, back

 

Banksia Buddies is back. Sydney’s best nature play program for 3-5 year olds returns to Centennial Park these autumn school holidays. Unmissable fun!

After a short hiatus, this popular program will run 10am to 11am on 7, 9, 14 and 16 April 2015. Bookings are now being taken online, so don’t miss out.

 

What is Banksia Buddies?

At Centennial Parklands we don’t do babysitting. We have a deep commitment to connecting kids to nature, through hands-on exploration and play. The aim of the sessions is to have a lot of fun…and learn (however, it’s often so fun that the kids don’t realise they’re learning!).

Each Banksia Buddies session involves interactive stories, songs and science demonstrations followed by free play hands-on activities. Different sessions have different themes, so book once or book multiple times.

Sessions are $20 per child (with younger siblings accompanying a child go free).

 

Connect with nature when young, develop a love of nature for life.

Our online booking page is now live and you can book straightaway. We recommend booking early as most sessions sell out.
