Sydney Nature Playgroups for Little Ones (0-5yrs)
- Mums & Bubs
Looking for some outdoor fun for you and your little one?
Interested in connecting with some other like-minded parents who believe in the importance of nature play?
Keen for your children to indulge in some risky play in a controlled environment?
Come join Sydney Nature Kindy under the grand fig trees in Centennial Parklands for our nature-based playgroups running each Wednesday.
All children welcome! We love the magic that happens when children of different ages play together.
Why nature play?
It is so important for children to be outdoors in nature, experiencing all weathers, and following the rhythm of the seasons.
Why is this? Apart from playing outside being endlessly fun, a great number of studies have shown that children who are able to regularly play in nature have:
- Increased levels of happiness
- A stronger immune system
- Improved physical health
- Increased physical and literacy skills
- Improved focus and attention
- Greater emotional intelligence
- Increases community connection
- Reduced levels of stress, anxiety and depression
What to Expect
On welcoming you and your little people, everyone will form our yarning circle to acknowledge our traditional owners, the Bidjigal people of the Eora Nation, learn a bit about the land we are gathered on and listen to a story about the area.
This term we are super excited to be partnering with the lovely guys at Deadly Ed, for a new series of nature playgroups. Darren will be on hand to help the children identify native wildlife and bush tucker and share stories relevant to the Bidjigal and Gadigal land we gather on.
Please be mindful that this is an all-weather activity and we will proceed regardless except in the case of extreme weather conditions eg high winds, or severe storms. So come dressed accordingly!
What to bring?
- Water bottle and any snacks you require (no nuts please).
- Layers in case of a change of weather and potentially a change of clothes.
- Gumboots and raincoat if it is raining.
Note: An adult will be required to accompany all children attending so we’ll do our best to make the session fun for our big people as well!
