Our program has been developed to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through climbing, balancing, walking and fine motor skills during our craft activities. Research clearly shows that the more time your child spends in nature, the better they are prepared for school, both physically and emotionally.
Our workshop facilitator Alicia lives on the Peninsula and has a love for all things nature.
Ages: 3 – 12 years (siblings under 14 months are welcome to attend for free).
