Holistic Nature Playgroup for mama & child.  Join us on in our rainforest garden as we gather to celebrate the seasons and explore all that the earth has to offer.

Our weekly Little Explorers Nature Playgroup program focuses on sensory nature play, nature themed art and craft activities, storytelling, songs, games, unstructured play and plenty of opportunities to build gross motor skills through climbing, balancing and movement.


Join us for a wonderful morning of free play, bush craft and nature connection.

Our Little Explorers nature playgroup offers different themes and activities each week however a gentle rhythm guides our day. We aim to keep our sessions child-led, interest-based, experiential and in tune with the rhythms of the season. We allow children the time, space and freedom to learn, explore and experiment at their own pace.


Some of the activities include baking bread rolls for our morning tea, mud play, nature art and crafts, earth painting, nature stamping, creating with clay, gardening, sewing, hammering and exploring in nature.

Our playgroups allow parents to disconnect from their busy lives and re-connect with their child in nature - this is a wonderful time for you to sit back and enjoy watching your child play, while connecting to a community of like-minded families who are supportive and welcoming.


This is an all weather outdoor playgroup so make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing. While we are lucky to have a sheltered area available, we ask you to bring along wet weather gear - raincoats, gum boots, rain pants - a change of clothes (your child will get dirty!) a and a brimmed hat on sunny days. Playgroup will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning - fire, storm, high temperatures and strong winds.

Please also bring with you water and a piece of fruit to share.
