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 JESS & JOSH

Co-founders of Play By Nature. 
A husband and wife duo excited to bring their knowledge and creative flare into early childhood development. With Jess's creative background and Josh's business background, it was the perfect mix for this to succeed. 

Jess & Josh have a relaxed approach to teaching and this is exactly why this has been a success. This business has been about building our community and families have loved being able to let go and be in the moment - something that Jess & Josh are great at.

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.
