Remember when you were a child, and you climbed trees, rode bikes until your parents called you in for dinner? Where you hammered pieces of wood, or tinkered with old pieces of machinery?
Where you played, but somewhere along the way, you learnt. You learnt those intangible things that helped you grow as a person?
That’s what Natural Learners is bringing to children in our Before School, After School and Vacation Care programs.
Schools have a very important role in educating children, and at Natural Learners we want to compliment your schools teaching programme, not by adding more formal education to their lives, but by giving children room to grow in other ways.
Natural Learners aims to provide a programme for children that allows them to grow as individuals in an environment that challenges children to extend themselves.
Did you know that CCB & CCR have been replaced?
In July 2018, the child care benefit and child care rebate was replaced with a single system called the Child Care Subsidy.

Natural Learners is invested in providing quality Outside School Hours programs nationally. Our model is based on enriching childhood, using natural materials and spaces where possible, to promote play based learning and enquiry. As a new player in the national Outside School Hours space, we want to partner with parents, teachers and communities across the country. With your support, we look forward to bringing our philosophy and programs to your children across Australia. Read more about who we are in the About link.
It takes a village to raise a child and Natural Learners sees itself as part of each community that it operates within. We see our role in the village as supporting families by offering a time and space for children to enjoy their childhood outside of school hours.
At Natural Learners we have the distinct advantage in the outside school hours space of using play as the context for all our learning be it intentional learning or spontaneous. What is the advantage of using play to learn? Play:
- allows for the expression of personality and uniqueness.
- enhances dispositions such as curiosity and creativity.
- enables children to make connections between prior experiences and new learning.
- assists children to develop relationships and concepts.
- stimulates a sense of well being.
Claire and Craig are my customers – I provide the apparel so the business is recognised quickly – hi vis apparel is important for people to wear if they need to stand out when crossing roads for example or during dawn/dusk when visibility is limited. Claire and Craig are responsible, honest and hardworking in every transaction they instigate with me. Having known Claire for just over ten years now I know that she has very high standards when it comes to raising children and values her role in in the community and with those she comes into contact with in high regard too.
The dedication, innovation and commitment from everyone at Natural Learners (in particular Claire) is unrivaled. My 3 children are beautifully cared for whilst being challenged through new experiences. The philosophy of natural play and discovery makes Natural Learners excel in all that they do. We are so grateful to have our kids enrolled with Natural Learners.
Claire and the team are so amazing. They are so awesome play workers & carers. My son absolutely loves spending time with them.
Many thanks for today Claire and team. The boys both really enjoyed their day. I just wanted to give a little positive feedback as sometimes we only receive the negative. Great to know when your doing a great job. Thanks and boys will be soon joining you again.
