NATURE PLAY

Play goes 'old school' at our fabulous new nature play space in Dempsey
SCHOOL HOLIDAYS ONLY (04.07.20-08.08.20)

Are you tired of indoor play gyms and pirate-ship playgrounds which offer the same limited play-formula for children? Then come along and experience our nature space where nature takes centre stage and offers limitless possibilities for adventurous play and exploration for children aged 2 years to 12 years.

 

We mix it up each week with new play opportunities and optional activities to connect children with the natural world. Through opening our Forest School site up for nature play we provide more opportunities for children to get outdoors  without the regular commitment of Forest School.

"Nature Play provides the child with the space, place and time to follow their own play-urges – and you are the secure base" -

The difference between Nature Play and Forest School
Safety in our Nature Space 

Nature play in the tropics isn't without its hazards, and it won't be right for everyone. Take a look at our Hazard Watch to know what to expect!

Respect Nature

Taking things home

Please don’t take anything without asking – lots of things can be taken away, but some things we may have carefully sourced and provided so please check with us first.

Picking Plants 

Please don’t pick plants without checking first - this is allowed for many species of creepers, weeds, invasive species, but not everything, so let us show you what is OK.

Trampling

Please don’t trample in the planting beds – there are lots of places you can trample in the open spaces, clearings and pathways.

Living Creatures

If you catch any wildlife please take care of it and return it to its home after you have had a little look – we have found plenty of wildlife so we’re sure you will too.
