About the event

The sessions are run on Tuesdays from 9.30-11am. The dates for the taster sessions this term are 4th June, 11th June and 18th June.

Nature Nest Playgroup is about providing a space for families to come together and support each other... a parenting 'villlage.' A place where one holds a baby for another to have some 1:1 time with their toddler, or watches over little ones in the mud kitchen whilst their grown up grabs a cuppa, where you can make connections and build relationships. A place where you come as you are and leave feeling like you have filled your cup. 

There are many areas in our wild garden for your children to explore and play- from mud kitchen fun, to sand play, fairy gardens, climbing and balancing logs/trees, flower gardens and more. Babies will enjoy watching the other children, listening to the birds, watching the leaves moving in the breeze and the light flickering though the trees. The hammock and swing are also big hits, from babies right up to the grown ups!

The whole session will be unstructured for the little ones to follow their interests and explore (there will not be the adult led craft/tool activities, camp fires and base camp circles that Nature Tots has). 

Families can bring their own snacks/lunch for them and their little ones to eat whenever suits them during the session. There will be hot drinks for grown ups to help themselves to.​
