I’m delighted to finally offer a family class to share our belief in the power of play. Play is nature’s way of promoting optimal learning for children and it often involves unstructured playful natural movement. This kind of play - that is so natural to them - is essential for them to develop physically, emotionally and socially. The power of play, of movement, being in nature, of connection between parent and child, and learning how to play together, is the aim of this class.
This is a class for all the family, parents and children (any age 16 and under), whether you carry your child in a sling or they’re already taller than you. Run, jump, climb and play games. Track tigers, climb like monkeys, and release your inner child back into the wild. Reignite your imagination and live for the now, where we can learn from our children’s abilities, just as much as we can learn from them. Facilitate and help teach - and learn - how to a healthy relationship with our bodies, peers, community and habitat.
I encourage a flexible, child-led plan - play is at the forefront of my mind. If I lose your child’s engagement, I change the course of the class to follow their lead. The power of play, of movement, of connection between parent and child, and learning how to play together, is the aim of this class.
