Weekly nature play sessions
How much time do you spend outside in nature with your children? Is it something you wish you did more? If it is, come and join the team from Raw & Unearthed and connect with other families on the Central Coast to rekindle your love of nature together with your children.
Raw & Unearthed play sessions are for children between the ages of 18 months - 5 years (and their family). The sessions will be run on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30am – 11:30am up at the beautiful Kincumber Mountain Reserve.
Each session cost $12 and full payment is required prior to the commencement of term. Siblings under 18 months may attend free of charge.
What may unfold during each session.....
*bushwalking *exploring native flora and fauna *adventure *nature art *shelter building *mud play *tool play *seek and discover hunts *storytelling *puddle jumping *friendship *connection *fun and more!
Raw&UnearthedPLAY will be largely unstructured and child led play enabling children and families to really slow down and connect with each other and the world around them. The play session will offer an opportunity for families to reconnect with their inner child and see the world and all its wonders as they once did through the eyes of their child.
Children will be encouraged to follow their curiosities ~ explore tools ~ jump in puddles ~ ignite their imaginations ~ explore the native flora and fauna ~ develop resilience ~ make mud pies ~ face fears ~ build friendships ~ collaborate and develop understandings of the natural world. All whilst having fun and playing OUTSIDE!
