Introducing the Nature Play Handbook
Published on 12 October 2020
Outdoor activities such as nature play improve focus, motor skills and physical health, as well as assist children to develop resilience, independence and self-awareness.
Our Nature Play Handbook is a practical, easy-to-use guide that supports families and educators to encourage nature play and implement a nature play program in early year’s education.
Including an overview of green spaces in Stonnington and outlining meaningful activities, this handbook can be used by families, educators to encourage child development through cultivating a connection the natural environment.
Informed by research and developed with insights from educators from Ewing Kindergarten, the handbook provides guidance on introducing nature play in an early year’s educator environment.
To explore the benefits of nature play further, join us at the Nature Play in Stonnington workshop in October.
This workshop will be facilitated by early learning environmental education expert Deanne Jones from CERES and two local nature play educators who will share their first-hand experiences. This workshop will outline how to actively engage children in meaningful nature-based play.
