Natural Learners is an approved provider of Education and Care services through the Department of Education & Training. This means we are a regulated service, within a highly regulated sector. We take huge pride in offering a service that we believe exceeds that of what is expected, whilst still staying true to authentic child-led experiences that create lasting memories, resilience and character building.
We are a small OSHC service with our base being located at Axedale Primary School. Over the holidays we try to get out and about, off school grounds as much as possible to enjoy different experiences and meet new people. It also creates the opportunity for other children to join us from different schools/networks, forging new friendships with other like-minded families in the Greater Bendigo area.
Our program is very much about holistic development. We embrace spontaneous child-led moments support the growth of life skills. We DO climb trees, roll down hills and interact with the world around us. This is done in conjunction with teaching appropriate risk assessment skills to minimise risk and eliminate hazards. We take this part of the program extremly seriously and as such require that all children and families understand and trust our commitment to safety within a child-led, hands-on and at time spontaneous environment. We expect behaviour that reflects this, along with good manners and attitude. We reserve the right to cancel any bookings where behaviour poses an unacceptable risk for the individual or the group.
