Nature and art hub for kids and their grown ups

Come and enjoy a refreshment in peace whilst your children explore, create and play in our nature play area. 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.

Paper Bird has found a nest among friends at the historic Moores Building, alongside the Moore Gallery and the Moore & Moore Cafe, on Henry St. Close by to other independent bookshops, New Edition and Bill Campbell's Books, along with Notre Dame University, Paper Bird is helping create a literary precinct in the West End of Fremantle. A dedicated story house is evolving around the bookshop with writers, story tellers & illustrators on hand, workshops, kids book clubs, animation screenings, book launches, and discussion panels in planning to make for a dynamic children's cultural hub. The children's specialist bookshop will stock quality books, focusing on Australian writers and illustrators, along with children's art supplies for budding illustrators. Jen Jackson is the bookshop owner and coodinator of the story house. Having worked in London, Perth and Melbourne for many years in child mental health services and an avid visitor and supporter of children's literature and arts centres across the world, she has collected her ideas, vision and enthusiasm to create a little literary arts house for children in Fremantle where there is a wealth of local children's writers, illustrators and story tellers.
