Unfortunately do to a recent substantial fee imposed on all users of City of Greater Geelong public spaces, Tree Time cannot proceed for term 2. Please contact Michelle on email@example.com to discuss an informal group option for school aged children.
How can climbing trees help a child to write? How can building tee pees help a child to sit upright in a chair? How can rolling down a hill help a child move around the classroom? How can nature help a child participate in kinder and school to their best ability?
Welcome to Tree Time Kids Club where a very sneaky and skilled Occupational Therapist hides many developmental benefits in FUN BUSH PLAY! After a hard day of kinder/school free nature play is a fantastic outlet for all that built up energy. At tree time we facilitate free play and semi-structured activities in an environment rich in potential for pre/school skill development.
You may or may not be concerned with your child’s development and kinder/school particiation. That is ok, all abilities are welcome at Tree Time. If you are concerned, Occupational Therapist, Michelle, is available to provide a specific goal directed activity plan.
-4.15-4.30pm free play to allow time for families to arrive/get changed after school/kinder

Tree Time is a parents stay and play activity. Siblings are also welcome to stay and play (and maybe get muddy too!). There will be activities suitable for younger and older children. The Fox Guild runs family events and our philosophy is that all members of the family should share in the benefits of Vitamin N (nature).
Tree Time term 2 will commence on Monday 16th April 2018 and will run for 9 weeks (with a break on the Queens Birthday Public Holiday) The last session will be on Monday 18th June 2018.
Tree Time is a rain or shine outdoor group. So, even if it is rainy and cold session will still run, after all, lots of fun can be had in the rain! The Fox Guild has an Extreme Weather Policy and sessions will be cancelled in the case of Extreme Weather (eg high winds).
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries. There is no such thing as a silly question!
