Honeymyrtle  offers a nature-immersive experience in a natural and nurturing setting in the Adelaide Hills, providing nature-based play activities, bush adventures, story-telling, risk-taking and social and community-building.

By recognising their dedication and commitment to play and by letting it unfold without unnecessary interruption, children are able to wholly bring into being their own deep imaginative forces. Open-ended natural materials for play are capable of endless transformation and imaginative enrichment so at Honeymyrtle, simple animal figures, coloured cloths, natural shells, wood, seed pods and wooden furniture and loose parts make children the creators of their own play. Adventures into the bush give an appreciation for the natural world, stimulating curiosity and engendering respect… whilst having fun getting dirty!

Reverence, wonder and joy are elements of every day and are as valuable to the heart as learning is to the mind. Children and their families form the Honeymyrtle community with half day activities, playgroups, workshops and bush adventures led by an experienced early childhood educator with a passion to share the natural world in a meaningful and non-tokenistic way with children and families.
