When given space to explore, connect, and follow their own
curiosity children are able to grow their resiliency, compassion, communication and innovation. It is our mission to cultivate these skills through child-directed play initiatives, nature-based
explorations and community rich engagement.
We believe that children have the right to play. Through play children learn about themselves and engage with peers, their community and the larger world in meaningful ways.
We believe that providing space for play, where children can take ownership, is vital for the future of our global community and planet.
We believe that early and continuous engagement with the natural world provides lifelong social, emotional and developmental benefits as well as a foundation for environmental responsibility.
We believe in a respectful, holistic approach towards working with children where they are active co-creators in a vibrant learning community.
Our vision is to create a more vibrant, connected world where all children have access to nature and the freedom to
play. We're based out of Greater Cleveland, Ohio and you can find us along the trails,
beaches, parks, community gardens and anywhere there's a muddy puddle, climbing tree or rock to overturn.
