Written by Kyra, our Nature Warrior
Welcome to the Nature Warrior Blog, a place where you can read about the amazing experiences the children at Kids World Gilston get to have in their day to day learning. Firstly let me introduce myself, my name is Kyra, and I am the one and only Nature Warrior. I am so fortunate to be working here at Kids World and have been given the privilege of becoming the Nature Warrior. My position came about when the owner and directors of my service recognised my passion for teaching in the great outdoors, they saw my qualities of greatness and worked with me to create this amazing role.
My aim Is to create a positive natural environment in which the children can continue to expand on their learning and play. Allowing the children the benefits of nature play such as social, emotional, and cognitive development. To give the children access to opportunities in nature that help them learn resilience and allow their own creativity to flow freely. Our yards have trees to climb, a mud pit, rocks to hop on and over, gardens for the children to tend, compost bins, worm farms, bush land, a visiting mob of kangaroos from time to time and we even have three beautiful Silkie chickens.
The Nature Play journey is one I look forward to sharing with the children and our wider community.
