Brambles Outdoor Parents and Toddler Groups

Our Aims

“Parents and children alike need time for solitude, time to stretch and think and wonder, time to become acquainted with ourselves and the world around us.” Katrina Kenison

The aim of our work is to make a contribution to the local community through promoting the wellbeing of both children and parents alike.

 

For Children:

To promote free play which is child-led

To protect children’s innate connection to their environment, the natural world

To allow children to interact with their ever-changing environment

To enable children to take healthy and manageable risks

To allow children to experience complete freedom of movement

To allow opportunity for children to follow their own initiative

To engage with other children in an unstructured, unhurried space

To have a multi-sensory engagement with the world

For Parents:

To give parents the time and space to awaken their own natural sense of wonder

For parents to forge friendships and feel part of a community which supports their important job of parenting

To give parents the opportunity to closely observe their child’s development

To offer an excellent introduction to the Steiner approach to the young child
