Week 4 – Tuesday 24th January

  • For all of our programs at TimberNook we won’t offer anything that is not environmentally friendly such as soap foam, shaving cream, or detergents so we can be sustainable.
  • We will have the water slide each day and schedule it for the same time. This way we can be mindful of the water we’re using. Our waterslide will run from 12.30-1.15, by this time everyone has eaten and all dry before going home, great way to finish the day on a high.
  • Please remember to be sun safe, pack sun safe bathers (or even an old t shirt!) and an extra pair of clothes to get changed in to.
  • We will still light the fire and have snacks each day!

PLEASE NOTE: We are now accepting 2023 Creative Kids Vouchers.  If you would like to use your 2023 voucher, please make your bookings first, then email us at [email protected] 

Costume Creations

Today, children have the opportunity to make their own costumes and to add onto their forts and bases.

Motor Skills: Creating costumes from scratch is a great way to engage the small muscles of
the hand. Children will need to grasp tightly in one hand while stitching gently with the
other, which is a complex motor plan.

Sensory Integration: Children will experience a variety of sensations through textured
fabrics in their hands as they manipulate. The costumes will provide light touch input
when worn.

Social Skills: Dramatic play provides a great social outlet for children, and creates the
opportunity for many topics of conversation. Children will likely call upon one another for
help as they attempt this challenging activity.

Cognitive Skills: Children will plan and execute the construction of costumes, which is a
great way to challenge spatial skills and sequencing of actions. It is a big challenge to
create a three dimensional object such as an article of clothing from a two dimensional
piece of fabric.

    My 4yo wild child has been attending Nature Kindy for almost a year now. It is his favourite day of the week. He has the best time playing and getting dirty, exploring the bush, splashing around in the creek, climbing anything he can, building things and engaging in imaginative play with his friends. He thrives in nature and has developed such confidence and coordination in navigating the outdoors.

    So grateful to have access to such a wonderful program. Highly recommend TimberNook Newcastle to anyone interested in a more holistic, play-based and unstructured style of early learning, and to anyone wanting to give their children some wholesome childhood experiences centred around Mother Nature.

    The children are in great hands with Denise & Terri and the rest of the team 💚
