Creating a sense of belonging through nature play
Nature play goes beyond play spaces – it addresses the needs of the whole child. It considers how we guide and foster student agency, connectedness, wellbeing and belonging. This full day workshop looks at nature play at a much deeper level that transcends beyond physical spaces and what it means to ‘belong’. It looks at how we view children as capable and competent, place-making, and how to set up successful programs such as beach and bush kindys, productive gardens, and connections to Country through art and language. These elements form an important part of belonging.
