TREE TIME KIDS CLUB
The goals of Tree Time Kid’s club are twofold:
- To offer members a rich social play opportunity in nature to help develop kinder/school skills; and
- To offer members an opportunity to learn ‘bush skills’, like fun map reading, hiking, fire safety and cooking.
So, how can climbing trees and rocks 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?
Does your family love to camp or hike? Would you like to learn bush skills in a fun group setting?
Welcome to Tree Time Kids Club where a very sneaky and skilled Occupational Therapist hides many developmental benefits in FUN BUSH PLAY!
You may or may not be concerned with your child’s development and kinder/school/home school participation. 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 4 at The You Yangs. In the meantime an informal no cost after school play session is available to current Little Foxes members.
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).
Currently we are running a very informal weekly play session for school aged children and their families. This session is run at various locations and is free of charge to current Little Foxes members. There is no structure or ‘formal’ activities set up for this session. If you are interested in learning more please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bookings will be available on thefoxguild.bigcartel.com
Mud Pies All Abilities Playgroup
Come and get muddy with Mud Pies!
Planning is underway for this great new Fox Guild group.
Mud Pies will be an all abilities playgroup for 0-5year olds with special needs. It will be a smaller group than Little Foxes Nature Playgroup but offer many of the same activities.
Mud Pies will be limited to 8 families to allow for more 1:1 time with Occupational Therapist, Michelle. Michelle will discuss concerns and goals and use nature based activities to help meet these goals.
Michelle will be available to speak with your child’s therapy/educational team through the term.
All Fox Guild events are family friendly, so siblings are welcome to attend and play. All events are parents/carers stay and play too!
If you are interested now in a nature based playgroup facilitated by an Occupational Therapist, please feel free to contact Michelle to discuss joining Little Foxes. Little Foxes is an all ability playgroup.
Please see our current timetable for details.
