Tales and Trails Storytime – Term 3, 2023
August 8, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Spending time in nature is so good for our physical and mental wellbeing. Get your pre-school children outside and join us at Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre to listen to stories about nature and explore one of our fabulous reserves. (Suited to children aged ~2-4 years who are able to sit and listen to two stories.)
Please wear enclosed shoes, a hat and/or other weather appropriate clothing. If the weather is too hot or wet, I will provide an activity inside the centre looking at artefacts (seed pods, feathers, leaves etc) and I can provide colouring in sheets. If there is light rain, we will still go out, so make sure to wear a raincoat! If heavy rain, storms or damaging winds are predicted the session will be cancelled.
Children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times. Every person who will be attending will need to be registered, including babies. Register for one or all dates.
(Tales and Trails is part of our ongoing toddler program on Tuesday mornings at PLEEC. It alternates with Buds n Blooms Nature Play Group.)
As we will be going out into a natural area please make sure you and the children with you follow the rules below:
- Feet on paths – We have a disease in the reserve called dieback that kills plants and that can spread on shoes.
- Gentle hands – Exploring textures of leaves and bark is interesting, however please encourage your kids to have gentle hands and not damage plants or other parts of the environment.
- Empty pockets – Collecting can be fun, however we encourage leaving what we find as homes for insects and lizards, food for fungi and trees and to stop the spread of disease. This includes picking flowers which make seeds to grow new plants and provide food for different animals.
- Eyes and ears alert – There are lizards, birds, frogs and snakes as well as lakes, low hanging branches, trip hazards in this reserve. Please keep your child close, and stay alert as you walk.
Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre is accessed from the westbound lanes on Leach Hwy.
