Day Program

Our new Day Program for 5-12y.o. homeschoolers begins on Wednesday, 2nd Feb, 2022.

Located in Koongamia, just east of Midland, at a purpose-built playgroup centre.

Kirsty serving up arty fun to homeschoolers.

We’ll spend our day playing and doing activities (both suggested & open-ended)-  indoors, and outdoors in the nature playground. All activities will be opt-in, run under the natural-learning principles that have informed my 12 years as a homeschool Mama. As at art class, which has been running for the past 12 years, our only rules are around safety- both physical & emotional.

The proposed flow of the day (flexible):

*outside time – 9am until 10/10:30am (as well as other times depending on weather)
*group sharing time
*shared morning tea under the verandah
*a planned activity
*lunchtime out under the verandah
*activity stations (open-ended)
*boardgames til pickup at 2pm
*optional extra– homeschoolers’ art class 2:30 til 3:30pm

—–Our planned activity could be art, craft, nature craft, exploring relevant annual celebrations, tapping into current events e.g. Olympics, something that the kids request, simple Science experiments & challenges… the sky’s the limit!

Any structured or open-ended activities your child participates in will be noted down and a summary emailed to you at the end of each term. Of course, your child will also bring home any work produced.

Please email Kirsty at fun@buddingartists.com.au for all of the details! I can’t wait to begin this exciting new chapter of Budding Artists with your kids!
