Whether it be part of a specific subject, an incursion or an excursion, our NP4K schools program can be shaped to fit your needs.

Generally the NP4K program is targetted at Primary aged students, however it can easily be adapted to suit Secondary ages groups. For the higher year levels we draw on the concepts and activities of Forest Therapy.

(Please visit our partner organisation Forest Therapy Victoria for more information on the Forest Therapy program.)


This is where our team comes to you. If your school is set in a busy environment or has large open, natural spaces, that’s enough for us to run a NP4K program. Similarly, if your school is a concrete jungle, but has a park or reserve within walking distance, we can meet you there.

For a Nature Play 4 Kids program, the only real requirement is, well, nature!


We recognise that some schools do not have the luxury of large open spaces or parks nearby. So the NP4K program can be offered as an excursion, where you come to us. We set up in a bushy location and you bring your students to us, to rotate through a series of nature based activities.

We can combine this with a short bush walk if a full day program is required.

Special Subjects or Events

If your students are doing a special nature based subject, the NP4K team can be part of the learning experience. Or, if you are having a school fair or open day, why not show off your natural environment by including Nature Play in the festivities?

A special focus can be added to your experience such as art, photography, mental health and wellbeing.
