NATURE PLAY

Play goes 'old school' at our fabulous new nature play space in Dempsey
Weekly, most Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons. Please check our timetable on the bookings page for weekly variations.
NEW! Nature Play with Kidmando
class every Thursday during nature play at 4.15pm

Are you tired of indoor play gyms and pirate-ship playgrounds which offer the same limited play-formula for children? Then come along with your children 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 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.

PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE CASUAL SESSIONS BOOKED PER SESSION AND CHILDREN MUST BE SUPERVISED BY THEIR ACCOMPANYING ADULT AT ALL TIMES

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

Wet weather is part of nature play. For every customer who doesn't want to come if its raining we have a customer who sees this as part of the experience.

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.
