Playgroup: Adamama Jnr offers a play-based outdoor learning experience for young children to interact with nature and engage in a range of experiences that supports their learning and development. Our playgroups are flexible, working around the interests of the children and aimed at connecting them to nature through a range of fun, sensory and hands-on activities as well as providing endless opportunities for unstructured play. We aim to create a place of belonging, build an appreciation and awareness of nature, the environment and sustainability.
We welcome all members of the community to join us. All materials and equipment are provided; you just need to book-in and turn up. Suitable clothing includes comfy clothing that may get dirty, hats, closed toe shoes and wet weather gear if it is raining (it is an all-weather playgroup).
Book in a preschool excursion: Our workshops are about allowing children to take the lead in their outdoor education.
We have created a selection of different topics to support outdoor learning in nature, using nature activities and suggestions to facilitate play rather than teach:
- From a Seed to a Plant
- Four Seasons
- Native Plants and Animals
- Upcycling and Recycling
- Colours in nature and the senses
