Wondering what children do at TimberNook?
TimberNook programs carefully balance both planned experiences and free play for children. TimberNook experiences are selected based on their therapeutic value and ability to inspire children to think and play in new and creative ways. During free play, TimberNook providers step back and children are empowered to problem-solve, take risks, and develop complex play schemes. TimberNook programs are designed to build gross and fine motor skills, support the development of a healthy vestibular system, and enhance attention, team-work and creativity.
About ‘Friends in the Wild’
This holidays our theme will be ‘friends in the wild’ and our explorers will have the opportunity to ‘adopt’ a toy from our native animal collection to join them on their adventures and inspire rich imaginative play. We will be thinking about and creating different kinds of homes for ourselves and our friends, experimenting with building boats and bridges to travel along and over the creek, as well as plenty of mud-inspired fun, and a woodland picnic. Your child does not need to bring a toy from home for this program but they are welcome to if they wish.
Who are the team?
At TimberNook South Adelaide, we have a small and dedicated team who facilitate each program. We have diverse professional backgrounds including health, education and conservation psychology. What unites us is a passion for seeing children outdoors in sensory-rich natural environments that support their health, happiness, and well-being. All of our team have a current DCSI clearance for working with children and have completed first aid training. We have a maximum ratio of 8 children to every adult, with a maximum of 30 children per session.
What do we need to bring?
We are a fully outdoor program so please bring suitable clothing for the daily weather conditions, including a beanie and waterproof jacket, gumboots, and (at least) one full change of clothes. Children should also bring a labelled water bottle, lunch, morning and afternoon snack.
