Intentionally designed nature – based program run by an experienced Occupational Therapist (OT) using evidence based approaches. 

Developmentally appropriate and sensory nature connection activities to support CALM, CARING, CONFIDENCE, COORDINATION and CONNECTION for all children and families

You will be supported to spend time in nature with your family while increasing your child’s physical, cognitive, psychological and social development as well as their environmental awareness.

 

Activities in the program develop into a routine that you and your children will learn.

We have group time (acknowledgement of country, nature activities, sharing, reflections, learning, social skills),

Intentionally designed sensory nature connection activities for calming bodies and minds, caring for nature, confidence building, coordination development and connection with ourselves and each other. These are all play based activities and the children don’t realise all the learning they are doing!!

There is also free play time as this unstructured time with ‘loose parts’ in nature is so important for your child’s development.

Time for parents/carers to have a moments in nature to notice and connect themselves is also an important part of the program! It is so good for all of us!!

The program is flexible and adaptable to the needs of the families, so feedback and comments about challenges you might be facing are welcome, so we can all support each other! 

A detailed invoice can be provided for a small $25 admin fee so you can claim the program with your NDIS funding. Please add this admin fee ticket to your program ticket if this funding applies to you (You may need to check with your NDIS plan if you are covered for Occupational Therapy first). 

 

Come and be supported to connect with nature and experience the health and wellbeing benefits for yourself and your child!
