The children and nature movement is fuelled by this fundamental idea: the child in nature is an endangered species, and the health of children and the health of the Earth are inseparable. - Richard Louv
nature kids club - 1 day events & school holiday programs
For earth inspired, nature play kids aged 4 - 12 years
Nature Kids Club & school holiday programs are an opportunity for your child to immerse themselves in an ecological adventure of learning, creativity, play, sustainable living, nature-connection and self-discovery.
Your child is joyously welcomed to be part of this safe, inspiring, magical and educational nature playground.
With head, hearts & hands, they will have the opportunity to engage in activities to stimulate the mind, body, heart and imagination to explore what it means to be a living, breathing member of an Earth community.
Through mindful movement, nature adventures, crafts, artistic expression and interactive storytelling, your child will discover the joy of learning with their whole-being.
Experienced and passionate facilitators guide diverse activities, supporting skill development in a broad range of experiences, which can include:
+ Environmental stewardship.
+ Mental, physical and emotional stress management.
+ Self-awareness and resilience.
+ Non-violent communication.
+ Music, drama, visual arts and dance.
Each Kids club and school holiday program has a different theme and set of activities following the rhythm of:
- Morning circle

- Morning tea (juicy fruit bowls or fruit platter).
- Main lesson activity: craft, outdoor play, group or individual projects depending on the event.
