What we do
Our primary role is to advocate for the importance of unstructured play outdoors to parents, schools, local governments and decision makers. We do this through programs, like the Passport to an Amazing Childhood, our website and newsletters, events and by working directly with stakeholders.
As well as advocacy Nature Play WA also helps schools, government and developers create nature play strategies to help encourage active and creative play outdoors.
How we can help you
As consultants Nature Play WA helps ensure school communities get the best nature play outcomes from their limited resources and their already stretched time. We do this by supporting them to identify nature play opportunities that already exist in, or near, their school, and by working through the best and most cost effective way of creating new nature play opportunities where needed.
We believe the best results come from looking beyond just paying for a nature play space to be created at your school. Good nature play outcomes come from considering policies relating to play, making the most of what you already have, involving the whole school community, and producing a professional brief for any new work that needs to be done.
Sometimes the most powerful outcome from deciding to create a nature play space is not the space itself, but the discussion it generates in your school community around the value of play, and the permission giving it entails between the teaching group and parents.
Our aim is foster that discussion, to help you get the best results for the smallest spend and to ensure your whole school community is on board all the way through the process.
