“I always remember as a child, going bush with my Dad on the weekends to collect wandoo for his artistic projects. There was something special about this time together. Only now as an adult am I understanding the importance of these experiences. Nature Parts Australia has enabled me to create unique and meaningful play pieces that draw from these childhood memories of learning through play.”
~ Ben Baarspul, Creative Director.
Our components are crafted in conjunction with the Animal Fun© program, recognising the importance of learning through play in a child’s development. Our selection of custom or stock pieces allows you the freedom to create an amazing space within your budget and to suit the capabilities and skill sets of the children you’re working with.
We can also arrange supply and installation through our partner Project Scape Australia
Many of the elements of each playground have been thoughtfully designed to incorporate the Animal Fun© program and offers children of all abilities challenges which will enhance their physical and social development.
Animal Fun is an evidenced-based program designed by physiotherapists, occupational therapists and psychologists from the Health Sciences Faculty at Curtin University. A 3 year randomised-controlled research project to assess the effectiveness of the program found that the children who participated in Animal Fun significantly improved their motor skills and social skills, and there was also a significant decrease in hyperactive and inattentive behaviours when compared to children in the control schools.
Project Scape Australia designs customised play equipment by hand to enable little minds to explore, create and imagine. We offer:
We believe every child deserves the right to play in nature and we will work with you to ensure we can maximise your play space potential.
