TimberNook meets forest school.....
Our nature-based playgroup experience is for younger TimberNook adventurers. You and your child will venture into nature for creative play opportunities that engage the mind and challenge the senses. Children are invited to crawl, walk, run and climb their way through our TimberNook forest; feeling their way through crunchy leaves, rough pine bark, and navigating the natural terrain.
Most playgroup days have a similar flow. There is usually storytime and silly songs followed by a play-based experience for the children such as building a den for a stuffed animal friend or mixing up a mud stew in our outdoor kitchen. We have snack together, picnic style, in our field then the children are off for lots of free play. This is when they can let their imaginations run wild. Lunch is the last 30minutes either in the field or under our covered pavilion.
This program is designed for children ages 18 months to 6 years and is sure to delight and inspire the youngest of minds. You’ll also walk away each week with an idea on how to inspire creative play outdoors at home.
Parents are welcome to stay and enjoy our TimberNook Coffee Shop in the forest. Parents of children 4-6 years can drop off.
*This program is 100% outdoors. Weather appropriate attire is required.
