We believe in the importance of children being outdoors in nature, experiencing all weathers and following the rhythm of the seasons.

Our vision is to create a nature-based long day education and care centre where the children spend their days exploring Centennial Parklands or the working garden at the house which will provide the fresh produce for their daily meals. 

They will climb trees, learn about the local flora and fauna and the cultural history of the area. They will help prepare the meals using the native edibles grown in the garden and learn to use the tools needed to tend it. Their days will be uncluttered and unrushed and there will be lots of time for unstructured play.

We believe children are capable and competent little humans who deserve our respect and that childhood is an incredibly special time that should be cherished not rushed through on the way to adulthood. Let’s focus less about what children will be when they grow up and celebrate them for who they are now.

We believe that children are more capable than we give them credit for, that they are citizens who should be valued and that childhood is a gift that should be celebrated before it is gone.

This is a time for children to learn about themselves and the world around them and most importantly to learn how to build relationships amongst their peers, their community and with nature.

Children are born ready to explore and are naturally curious learners. It is up to us to not put barriers in their way but to appropriately support them in this endeavour.

Our December 2021 Nature Playgroups were a success.

My two girls (3 years and 11 months old) LOVED nature kindy. For all of us it invited us to take a moment to live in the world of insects and spiders up close, magnifying glasses at the ready, and to look high and beyond at the trees, flying foxes and birds high in the sky.

Harrison who is usually a million miles and hour and rarely stays in one place for more than a minute settled into the nature play group and especially loved collecting specimens, balancing and walking on huge tree trunks and climbing and swinging from ropes in the trees. The mums even relaxed into all nature has to offer and enjoyed the tranquil nature of the group!
