Tree Time and Mud Pies



How can climbing trees help a child to write?  How can building teepees help a child to sit upright in a chair? How can rolling down a hill help a child move around the classroom?  How can nature help a child participate in kinder and school to their best ability?

Welcome to Tree Time Kids Club where a very sneaky and skilled Occupational Therapist hides many developmental benefits in FUN BUSH PLAY!  After a hard day of kinder/school free nature play is a fantastic outlet for all that built up energy.  At tree time we facilitate free play and semi-structured activities in an environment rich in potential for pre/school skill development.

You may or may not be concerned with your child’s development and kinder/school particiation.  That is ok, all abilities are welcome at Tree Time.  If you are concerned, Occupational Therapist, Michelle, is available to provide a specific goal directed activity plan.

Tree Time Kids Club will commence in Term 2 on Mondays 4.15-5.15pm at Balyang Sanctuary.  The cost is $15 per session per family payable termly.

Tree Time is a parents stay and play activity.  Siblings are also welcome to stay and play (and maybe get muddy too!).  There will be activities suitable for younger and older children.  The Fox Guild runs family events and our philosophy is that all members of the family should share in the benefits of Vitamin N (nature).

Bookings will open soon on
