Is an incorporated not-for-profit association established to increase the time Australian children spend in unstructured play outdoors and in nature.

Nature Play Australia

Designed for parents and carers of children 0 – 3 years old, and early childhood professionals, GROW with Nature Play has age appropriate play lists that can help their child GROW during the important formative years of a child’s life, in their:

  • Development

  • Health and wellbeing

  • Confidence

  • Curiosity, and

  • Family Bonds

 

The app also lets users create their own 'Nature Play Village' by inviting others to join their play circle.

And the GROW with Nature Play app lets you record your baby’s achievements so you never miss sharing a memory with family and friends.

Up to thirty children can be added to the app which makes it suitable for early childhood education providers and carers.

Developed with leading early childhood development research by Nature Play QLD, the community organisation that advocates the importance of unstructured outdoor play for children, GROW with Nature Play supports both open-ended explorative play and directed learning through play.

 

Benefits to babies include improved focus, creativity and confidence, along with the development of fine and gross motor skills.

Babies who spend time outdoors in nature daily are more content and settled.

Outdoor play or Nature Play is as essential for our children’s overall wellbeing as adequate nutrition.
