Official Nature Play Queensland Education Provider

16/07/2016
We are proud to announce that Camp Hill Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) has been recognised as an Approved Nature Play Education Provider by Nature Play QLD! We are the first OSHC we know of in Australia to receive this approval.
 
Nature Play QLD is a State Government body with a mission to increase the time Queensland children spend in unstructured play outdoors and in nature. It is founded on the understanding that unstructured play outdoors - nature play - is fundamental to a full and healthy childhood.
 
Nature Play promotes health benefits, including cognitive, social and emotional development, and it builds resilience and creativity as well. Experiences in nature as a child also lead to environmental awareness and stewardship later in life. The curiosity the OSHC have seen generated through these natural phenomenon has been actively documented as causing children to seek experiences and information as opposed to relying on what is brought and presented to them. The fostering of a creative and inquisitive mind is one of the single most important goals we hope to nurture at Camp Hill OSHC.
