Little Wildlings Nature Playgroup is a nomadic, nature-based play group for children who are not yet of school age. Meeting in wild spaces around the Sunshine Coast, this Steiner influenced group follows a loose rhythm that revolves around free play and exploration in nature surrounded by a loving and compassionate community of parents who are guiding their children on their life journey.
Whilst unstructured nature play will dominate the session, our Little Wildlings are also invited to participate in weekly invitational activities that might including story time, seasonal songs and nature arts and crafts along with opportunities for:
- Tree climbing
- Wildlife viewing
- Bush walking
- Mud pie kitchen
- Nature scavenger hunts
Unlike many traditional playgroups, this program is specifically designed to provide access and opportunity for our young children to engage in nature play. This is an all weather group that encourages adventure and exploration to help promote imagination and self discovery in an unstructured but supported wild space.
Whilst anyone can take their child into the bush and play, coming to playgroup allows children to form friendships and gives them a sense of belonging, as well as a connection with and desire to protect the spaces we regularly visit. When a child feels like they truly belong, they can begin to push their own limitations and are free to discover who they are and what they are capable of achieving.
