What we're about

In 2011, The Childhood Nature Project (Former known as Buzzy Kids Playdates) a 501-C3 Non-For-Profit organization was stablished, gathering at that moment families attending the toddler's program at The Miami Beach Regional Library to offer different types of outdoor activities around Miami.

As a result of the need of nature based activities in Miami, the playgroup families increased in number and in 2015, the first program was created: "IMAGINA a Parent and Child Institute" started with 6 families at Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park, gathering now around 80 families whom every year gathers twice a week at one of the different locations. Five years ago the second program became a reality after a long research and training process, with the support of the Small Community Grant from Children's Trust we were able to conceive "Adventures in the Forest" the First Forest Kindergarten in South Florida and became the beginning point of all the nature based education movement in Miami Dade.

Our team is conformed by moms who registered in the program and with the time decided to complete our training to become Mentors or Facilitators in the organization. We have a diverse range of professional backgrounds but what unite us is our desire to advocate for childhood and the freedom in allowing our children to grow up and learn at their own pace based in their own interests.

Our program rest on the following statements:
• Encourage to Conquer without limits
• Indirect interventions
• Conscious and Positive Discipline 
• Learning within Community

At this meetup group you will find our events and other nature / outdoor related events around Miami. We don't host all the events listed here (except for the ones at our locations). Our main goal is to bring a calendar of nature related events around Miami for families interested on raising their children in close relationship with nature.
