Ready, Set, Play | Rivermount Seedlings Nature Play Zone Ready for 2021

Our Early Learning Centre has been a busy construction hub over the last few months, with an extensive refurbishment project underway to accommodate Rivermount Seedlings, our new Kindergarten program starting in 2021.

Unique to this vibrant facility is the strong connection with the natural environment. In keeping with the mission of the College, the new centre will provide a creative, open-air atmosphere complete with a Nature Play Zone. Existing trees and shrubbery have been intertwined with an exciting array of new features to produce an immersive recreational and educational resource.

The Rivermount Seedlings Nature Play Zone will feature a sizeable eco-inspired water play space along with multiple active and sensory play areas. This area will combine a stunning dry creek bed with an authentic timber bridge. The bridge abounds a collection of boulders and pebbles, natural log stepping beams and a hand pump station will sit on top of a classic timber deck.

In addition, our Kindy students will be able to enjoy a sensory bike track where they can ride bikes over a variety of textures such as stone pebbles, wooden bumps and soft rubber.

Other areas of interest will include a nest swing, mud kitchen, Bali hut and sandpit, all creatively merged as one spacious and nurturing place to learn.

The centre will be ready for the inaugural intake of Kindergarten students in January 2021.
