Nature Play

Our learning environment promotes creativity, discovery and risk-taking through play. We believe that children learn best through play which intrinsically engages them in hands-on, real life, active experiences. We provide natural, dynamic materials which are irresistible and fun invitations to learn, through both solitary and social play. We have designated outdoor learning spaces such as the front garden and our onsite Preschool which has been inspired from the Nature Play theories.

a natural progression of nature play

We are continually creating an environment that reflects student’s perspectives on the world and trying to create spaces that give students the opportunity to engage in all the 5 senses. We provide materials in our Play Pods that allow students to engage in imaginative and create play.

Nature Play SA can help you create the best memories for your children by making unstructured, free play outside, something they can experience every single day.



Nature Play SA passports are a great incentive to get kids outside and active. Kids aged from three to 12 years old can access secret missions that will have them exploring, climbing, discovering, splashing, creative, swimming, rolling, riding, and enjoying being a kid outside.
