WE ARE PLAY BY NATURE!

Play by nature is an early childhood development centre focused on the Reggio Emilia approach. We provide educational, engaging and entertaining workshops for kids using the environment as the main teacher.

Our workshops are child-led with sensory integration at the forefront. Each child interprets our Play By Nature workshop set ups differently and that's the whole magic of it!

MEET JESSICA

Co-founder of Play By Nature. 
Jess is bubbly, passionate and creative. She found her love for teaching children from her time in Vietnam. There she learnt and gained the fundamentals of the Reggio Emilia approach and is inspired to continue using this method in her career going forward and hopes to introduce more families to this way of learning. 

MEET JOSHUA 

Co-founder of Play By Nature.
Josh is easy going, adventurous and always has a great outlook on life. Josh originally never thought he'd have a career in early childhood development but now he couldn't envision his life any other way.  He handles all our systems and operations that go into keeping Play By Nature going.

WHAT IS THE REGGIO EMILIA APPROACH?

The Reggio Emilia approach is an early childhood education program that puts children in the driver’s seat. The approach sees them as curious individuals with the potential to develop and learn at their own pace from their environment and the relationships they build with others.

 

Instead of viewing children as having needs which must be fulfilled, they are viewed as strong and intelligent individuals who should be given opportunities to reach their potential.
