Bush Playgroup is a regular time spent outdoors in nature exploring, playing and learning to help develop your child’s physical and mental activity.

We provide a safe and friendly environment with qualified staff to ensure your child feels free to explore and learn in a space that is comfortable to them.  

What does my child need to bring?

Their imagination and that’s about it! Anglesea Recreation Camp will provide your child with wet weather gear in case we come across some puddles in our adventures. 

How much will it cost?

This is a term based program that will be incorporated into a weekly learning calendar to ensure a consistent learning space for your child. The program is $50 for each term, this includes transportation to and from camp, use of wet weather gear and the program itself.
