Welcome to Gumera Learning Haven's Nature Adventure Play

At Gumera, we are dedicated to fostering a love for outdoor learning, and we are excited to introduce our innovative Nature Adventure Play Program. This unique program is designed to provide children with unstructured outdoor spaces where they can freely explore, climb, and engage in play. Included in our daily curriculum, our Nature Adventure Play offers children the opportunity to immerse themselves in the natural environment, building connections with nature and experiencing hands-on learning like never before.

The benefits of Nature Adventure Play are: 

  • Curiosity, reflection and creativity
  • Brain development and problem-solving
  • Open-ended play
  • Connecting to the land and mindfulness (didiri)
  • Risk tasking, safety and bravery
  • Spatial awareness, growth, motor and freedom to learn through play

To learn in nature is to engage hands, heart and mind.

After coming from a centre who promoted “inclusion “ (yet was very far from it ) to being at Gumera it finally feels like we belong. I have no doubts, worries or issues as my son is supported, well cared for and included by the most loving, caring and amazing staff! Everyone has a smile, there’s nothing they won’t do to work with you. they have gone above and beyond to make sure my son had a better experience than we did with the last kindy which left him scared of going and me anxious about leaving him. Since Gumera He has come along in leaps and bounds and wants to go to kindy which makes me so happy. Highly recommend to anyone. I’ve worked in childcare for over a decade and this centre provides an incredible level of care.

Gumera is a lovely centre. We have had two children attend from the nursery room to the 2-3 year old room. The nursery staff we had were fantastic (Leanne, Lucinda and Ash) they treated my son like their own and he loved going to them which made it easier as a mum to return to work. My older daughter made some beautiful little friends and had Amity as her educator and she was fantastic. Angi the director was very helpful. The centre has a beautiful outside play area for the kids over looking the lake. Lisa preps the yummiest food and even had my fussy one eating her goods! They had good events for parents to be involved. We were sad to leave but our kids enjoyed their time there while they were there.

The most beautiful centre I have experienced in all my years. My baby started off there in the babies room earlier this year and the Lead Educator, Leanne, was the most patient and loving person towards my little boy. I felt so comfortable leaving him there and she always called to re-assure me and gave continuous updates about how his day was going. Angi is an amazing Director and always will do anything to make life easier for the parents. My little boy loves it there and I couldn’t be happier! 🫶🏻 🙌🏻

Gumera Learning Haven is truly amazing, not only is it BEAUTIFUL and in a great location, but the team truly makes my families experience so wholesome! 😍 From the very first time I walked in the doors, leaving my baby for the first time and to now being 5 months in, every single day and interaction is a blessing! I am so thankful for each and every educator and for Angi & Nikki being so welcoming & knowledgeable! ❤️ I cannot recommend Gumera enough!! 🥰

I moved my kids to Gumera Learning Haven a few months ago and in this short time I have noticed such positive changes in both of them. The staff are all fantastic and have made my whole family feel welcome. Every time we walk in all you see is positive people, smiling and interacting with all of the kids. The yard is beautiful and has so much for the kids to do. I wish I moved my kids sooner because they are thriving now.

I would recommend this centre to any parent. Especially being an educator myself there’s nobody else I would trust my son with. Super happy
