"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."

Fred Rogers

Directors, Chris and Emma Lawrence

We are the parents of four youngsters and we both have fantastic recollections from our childhoods when we played in natural environments. We are conscious that the world we experienced as children is not as readily available to our own kids.

We live in the suburbs of Perth, but own a block of land in the country (a place called Moodiarrup) so we have somewhere the kids can have a bit of freedom away from the restraints of the city. So far there have been many hours of fun down at ‘The Block.’

We are both active in our children’s schools and we have learnt first hand the effort involved in implementing nature-based play. It was this experience that put us on the path to offer a service to make the whole process easier for others. We encourage you to make contact with us to discuss your needs or ideas.
