NATURE PLAY IN THE CITY
Originating from a mother’s heart, our play designs are inspired by children’s daily lives, Peter Gray’s play in education theories, David A Kolb’s experiential learning, Waldorf, Montessori and STEM’s education philosophies. We design appropriate space, time and materials for 1-12 year-old children to lead their own explorations, plays and creations. There is no structured ways to plays and children learn from plays. Parents are encouraged to support children effectively and strengthen parental bonding.
