This program is all about allowing the children to dive deep into their imaginations–with a little help from their friends! Children will pick a favourite stuffed toy/character from home and bring it into the woods with them. They will enjoy making homes, shops, and playgrounds for their friends, creating boats and a water coarse, and engaging in many other adventures.
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.
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 6 children to every adult, with a maximum of 24 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 hat and (at least) one full change of clothes. Children should also bring a labelled water bottle, lunch, morning and afternoon snack, and sunscreen.
