Where children can discover, play and engage in the natural world.

Seedlings Nature School provides a captivating combination of nature-based activities, games and stories for children aged 2.5 – 5 years.

Participation in nature play has the ability to enhance children’s curiosity and creativity, boost self-esteem and improve resilience, allowing them to learn, make decisions and develop understanding in a natural, safe environment.

Time in nature is a fun, informative and wonderful investment in your child’s future.

  • Children must be accompanied by an adult carer.
