About PLAYbynature

PLAYbynatureLOGOPLAYbynature is about working to put freely chosen, self-directed and outdoor, active play back into the lives of children, ages 3 – 15, in the Toronto area.

We are working to do this by producing programs for play, working with communities to improve conditions for play and creating workshops and trainings about play and play provision.

Good quality play provision requires a web of inter-connected social and environmental supports. We work in collaboration with parents, caregivers, daycares, local agencies, schools, and city staff to introduce changes that will enhance children’s play opportunities in parks, playgrounds, school grounds, green space and outdoor neighbourhood settings. We believe that anything we do to improve our public spaces for children’s play and recreation will have a positive impact on the whole community – making Toronto a child-friendly city.
