Our “Seven Senses” Program

Can you name our sevens senses? Do you know how to age appropriately stimulate them during critical stages of your child’s growth and development? Your child’s senses provide an extensive range of learning opportunities and we are here to help! Curious Me offer a bespoke “Seven Senses” program to aid in this journey.

During the first 5 years of life, you are your child’s most important and valuable teacher. Unstructured play and hands on experience provide children with the opportunity to extend on their language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, social interaction and so much more!

What do you get?

  • 10 week program, weekly class run by an appropriately qualified early childhood educator.
  • Access to a wide and ever growing range of open ended and educational based resources.
  • Unstructured play, designed to encourage and age appropriately simulate curious little explorers.
  • A variety of invitations to play; including dry sensory, loose part, small world, messy and nature play based stations.
  • The opportunity to explore, get messy and muddy without having to clean up!

We care about our children and their families. We provide the opportunity to spend uninterrupted and quality time with your little ones. We pride ourselves on creating a safe haven for children and parents alike, where you can feel free from the judgement and pressures of parenting.

While we can’t guarantee it, based on personal experience, a really great nap time after class!

  • Themed class each week
  • Process Art
  • Movement to music and physical activity

At Curious Me we understand and value your child, their individual interests and unique ways of learning. We encourage their instinctual inquisitive natures by providing a safe place. We empower them to take acceptable risks and trust their bodily awareness. This often means getting wet, dirty, covered in paint, muddy and messy!

Let your little ones explore their natural curiosity with Curious Me.

What people and parents have to say about Curious Me.
Rachel Byard

Rachel Byard

Our term at Curious Me came to an end yesterday and it’s safe to say we had a blast! It has been so wonderful to see my children become very comfortable playing here over the past weeks. The property has the perfect balance of safe space and encouraging adventure. Angie and Kaycee do a wonderful job of setting up different activities each week which guarantee mess and sensory fun. They encourage the mess even! I think the children feel comfortable because they have freedom, nothing they do is ‘wrong’ because it’s all there for them to use as they please. Along with a great bunch of children, it’s also lovely to hang out with some other lovely mothers. I cannot recommend Curious Me highly enough.

Our team from a therapeutic children’s support program visited Curious Me for a well-being afternoon, re-connecting with our ‘inner child’ and re-imagining opportunities for play. Angie & Kaycee provided beautiful, creative sensory and natural play opportunities that sparked our curiosity and inspired our imaginations, reminding us of the wonderful way children see the world around them. We particularly love their use of everyday, sustainable and affordable materials that make play opportunities possible for families that may have challenges with financial and physical resources. We also love their philosophy of exploration in play, providing natural opportunities for children to learn about themselves and the world around them.

Being a mum of 2 children is hard work some days but keeping them happy, enthusiastic and completely engaged in outside messy play is easy at Curious Me. Every single activity is thought out and programmed for, well prepared and set up in the most accessible way for the little ones to explore, and parents are able to watch and enjoy seeing the pure bliss or excitement on their child/children’s faces when they get down and dirty in some real mud, or cacao powder mixed with pasta or or chia seeds mixed with jelly or just plain old goop play.

What these 2 sisters accomplish every week to make sure children have the tools and freedom to learn and explore is incredible. I strongly encourage for you all to go and check out their web page for more information and play ideas and keep your eyes peeled for messy play dates to come, they fill up real quick!!!

I highly recommend outdoor play and curious me does exactly that. Its laid back and chilled and let's the kids learn at their own pace. My son loved it and without a doubt was the messiest kid to leave our sessions so he definitely enjoyed messy play. Loved it and will be back.

The team at Curious Me are passionate about providing an amazing environment for kids of all ages to play and learn. It's not just an outdoor play area, it's so much more than that with careful thought put into each session and activities. My daughter started going when she was 7 months old and there were plenty of options for her along with the older babies. My daughter has an absolute ball each week at Curious Me. Highly recommend their program!

Curious Me allows my daughter to play in a safe space. She was able to take risks, explore open ended play through a variety of opportunities. She was also able to connect with nature and we met many incredible mums and dads. The best thing my daughter enjoyed was the freedom to get messy and that is why she has named it "The Muddy Place". We will definitely be back for Term 4!
