Animal Farms - Bush Kidz Child Care Centre Brassall Program

As part of our regular educational programs, each day, the children collect scraps within their rooms from lunch and cooking classes.

These scraps are then used to feed to the worms and to also place on the compost heap.

This allows children to explore the environment while learning about sustainability. Through this activity, children learn about what worms need to survive while exploring a new eco-system and the world of the worms.

The Benefits of Farm Activities for Children

When children have contact with animals in their daily lives, it sparks their curiosity and gives them a valuable opportunity to appreciate their natural environment. Observing and interacting with animals can be a valuable part of your child’s education and can enrich their learning. We love seeing children develop bonds with the animals and to develop their empathy and kindness as they feed, pat, and interact with the animals on our hobby farm.
