nature play for preschoolers storybook adventures

Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring the theme “Storybook Adventures”. Inspired by the fun and colourful tales by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, we’ll take a stroll through the Deep Dark Woods and see what creatures we might encounter on the way! We’ll see if our ingenuity and creativity will be enough to face challenges of all kinds! 

Our Nature Play program offers weekly activities specially created for children aged 4 to 6 and involves a fun morning of play-based investigation and discovery in nature led by our experienced Environmental Education Rangers. The program is structured with new nature themes each week designed to develop curious minds and playful spirits.

Nature Play will run on selected weekday mornings between 10am and 11.30am at the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden with all activities led by experienced Garden Rangers.

All activities are COVID-19 safe and bookings are essential as spaces are limited.

Benefits of Nature Play

Nature play significantly improves all aspects of early childhood development - physical, cognitive, social and emotional. Playing outdoors in nature grows resilience, self-confidence, initiative and gross-motor skills.
