Little Birdwings is a mobile outdoor nature play program, offering opportunities for children to experience playful learning with friends in nature. Children can take time OUT from busy schedules and time IN to discover, adventure, day dream and learn about their amazing capabilities in nature.

Nature adventures develop self confidence and resilience. We interact closely with our environment and everything that is a part of it. Each day, the children’s adventures may see them scrambling over fallen logs, climbing trees and boulders, building cubbies, playing in the creek, rolling down hills, racing over grassy pastures or going for long walks.

Our days are sociocratically led by the children and their desire for adventure, and we love to explore. Read our blog about Risky Play.

With small groups and a high adult-child ratio the children are guided through the day by experienced and qualified Nature Mentors. Our sessions are held 100% outdoors, and children play, eat, craft and sleep outdoors in a protected natural area.

Our days flow to a predictable rhythm designed to meet our needs for safety, food, rest and toileting throughout the day – with lots of time to play and learn. Read our blog about Handcrafts and Brain Development.

Multi-age groups allow for family grouping and community learning. Our younger friends learn from their older peers in our mixed-age groupings, through imitation and conversation with other children.

Children are supported by our Nature Mentors who encourage them to learn their skills for independence. Read our blog about working with babies and toddlers in nature.

Children leave our program with skills for self-regulation, empathy, and already fully curious learners. Read our blog about developing self-regulation and resilience through nature play.
