Children & Families

Natural Playspaces invite children to explore and expand their physical limits, cognitive understanding and imaginations. Quiet nooks become a home for gnomes and fairies. Stumps and rocks challenge one’s balance and self confidence. Loose parts and maker spaces turn into collaborative innovative creations. The texture and tone of a Learning by Nature playspace changes with the days, seasons and visitors. Gone are the days of prescribed play and abandoned playsets. Natural Playspaces and Music Parks foster a level of freeplay that will earn you and your child hours of healthy fun and frolic.
