Nature + Play
and Risk + Challenge
We endeavour to reconnect children with nature – to nurture rewilding of communities and spaces.
On a daily basis we witness all the benefits that spending time in nature brings, the beauty of collaboration between varied ages and abilities, excitement, creativity, thoughtfulness, innovation, mindfulness, busyness, and a healthy dose of risk and challenge.
The natural environment provides ample opportunity to create your own adventures. We believe found objects and loose parts are key to a dynamic, ever-changing space and advocate, where possible, for their inclusion.
There is a compelling body of evidence which suggests contact in nature is important for the health of our children and wider communities. The opportunity for risk and challenge is abundant in nature and exposure to it ensures children develop the skills required to keep themselves as safe as possible. Contact in nature ensures children develop a love and empathy towards it and in turn develop a sense of responsibility for it.
