Letting babies and children 'go' in nature - to play, explore, move and to connect.
Your baby... In the early years of your baby's life the brain operates in the frequency ranges used in hypnosis - delta and theta. These are pure download states, downloading EVERYTHING at 40 million bits per second! Just by being outside, on the earth, in nature, your child has the opportunity to download everything around them in the natural environment.
In order for our children to bond with nature and the earth, they must spend time outside.
Your toddler... Children need to play for their brains to grow to their full potential, to unfold their intelligences, to evolve their imagination and creativity. Please don't bring any toys into the woods, there are plenty of 'sausages', 'horses', 'houses' etc there already.
Nature Play® is about creating a space for the children to lead their own play, and a place for the adults to learn how to support that.
'Child-led play' means each child is free to follow his/her own play urges while, at the same time, respecting others. Successful child-led play depends on observing behavioural boundaries, such as no violent or aggressive behaviour.
Child-led play is where the child takes the lead, so that they can follow their own play urges.
After 11 years of running weekly sessions, over 14 groups and in 4 countries, we are moving our attention to knowledge sharing.
Watch this space as we bring you the secrets gained from over a decade of successfully providing child-led play sessions, in nature. Follow us on Facebook or sign up to the Mailing List for more news!
