Nature Kindy – WEDNESDAYS (Full Term Package)

Nature Kindy is a full day drop-off program following TimberNook curriculum in a way that supports enrichment and learning though nature play.

Your child will have opportunities extend their executive functions and social-emotional skills when playing in mud, climbing, creating, building and exploring tools.

Children will have enough time and space to freely dive deep into unstructured play with no defined end, where the conventional rules which govern the physical world, do not apply. They can enjoy close encounter play, assume roles of their wildest imagination, test new ideas, explore with all of their senses, construct with ingredients that the outdoor environment offers, develop mastery from taking risks and manipulate objects for both functional and symbolic means.

“Restore balance. Most children have technology, school and extracurricular activities covered. It’s time to add a pinch of adventure, a sprinkle of sunshine and a big handful of outdoor play.” – Penny Whitehouse
