Mixed-age Nature Playgroup

This mixed-age nature-based playgroup is an excellent combination of child-led and adult guided play-based learning unfolding in the most natural context possible.

Opportunities for child-caregiver connection through the incorporation of natural play, in a small group is highlighted to achieve overall wellness for everyone.

Groups are structured for littles with & without disabilities or diagnoses. Pre-registration is required. 

Groups follow a similar routine each week, beginning with a grounding activity, child-led play takes the group on an adventure where Amber skillfully supports the group to align their play with nervous system regulation tools. Adults and children have opportunities to connect and learn about the benefits of their play.  

If you have children in multiple age ranges or more than one child, please feel free to register them each separately. These are NON-SEPARATING groups- please plan to have a caregiver present. 

1x Drop-In or Bundled-Passes Available! Join a membership tier to maximize your benefits! 

Be sure to complete the registration form to indicate dates of attendance. REGISTER at least 1 week prior to date attending! 

If you are open to learning, would like to take yourself outside more often with your family, and are looking for simple activities that are easy to incorporate into your daily routines that will support the foundational skill development of your little human, please join us!

Led by occupational therapist Amber Scherkenbach, MS OTR/L, you’ll have fun while engaging in developmentally appropriate play-based activities that are intentionally selected to allow babies and children to practice skills while having fun outdoors!   

This is not a substitute for direct therapy.
