Nature Play Providers supply activities and resources within Nature Play QLD’s definition of what nature play is, as per our mission:

Nature Play QLD’s mission is to increase the time Queensland kids spend in unstructured play outdoors and in nature. It is founded on the understanding that unstructured play outdoors – nature play – is fundamental to a full and healthy childhood. Nature play promotes health benefits, including cognitive, social and emotional development, and it builds resilience and creativity as well. Experiences in nature as a child can also lead to environmental awareness and stewardship later in life.

We appreciate that some activities will have an inherent structure to them, but that they will ultimately support direct open-ended play or working towards open-ended play, as well as connect children with nature and or their local area.

If you are interested in becoming a Nature Play Activity Provider or know someone suitable, please contact our Social Media Coordinator on social@natureplayqld.org.au
