Overview

Wild Movement Perth willl be at Moore & Moore Cafe in Fremantle from 9.30am - 11.30am.

Come down and grab a coffee while the kids get some natural movement and nature connection in.

Steve Aldridge will also be free to chat with parents about ideas and strategies to bring more natural movement and nature connection into your family's life.

Here at Moore & Moore our Café is 60% farm-to-table and we pride ourselves in supporting local farmers to bring you a range of fresh and organic options. We are firm believers that a healthy diet as well as the opportunity for unstructured natural play can be hugely beneficial in the development of children.

Benefits of nature play: 

  • Children who play regularly in natural settings are sick less often. Mud, sand, water, leaves, sticks, pine cones and gum nuts can help to stimulate children's immune system as well as their imagination.
  • Children who spend more time outside tend to be more physically active and less likely to be overweight
  • Children who play in natural settings are more resistant to stress; have lower incidence of behavioural disorders, anxiety and depression; and have a higher measure of self-worth
  • Children who play in natural settings play in more diverse, imaginative and creative ways and show improved language and collaboration skills. Single use, repetitive play equipment becomes boring quickly.
  • Natural, irregular and challenging spaces help kids learn to recognise, assess and negotiate risk and build confidence and competence.
  • Children who play in nature have more positive feelings about each other.
  • Bullying behaviour is greatly reduced where children have access to diverse nature-based play environments.
  • Symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder are reduced after contact with nature.
