Play and Learn Nature Programmes

A unique New Zealand experience!


​Our Nature Programmes are unique to New Zealand but operate to the standard of the highly successful Forest Schools in Scandinavia, Northern Europe and the UK.


Our teachers are qualified, registered early childhood teachers and/ or have been trained overseas (Britain/ Germany) to the standard required to operate a Forest School.

Out of our Papatoetoe and Clarks Beach centres a group of children go out for the whole day to the same destination every week. This is great to develop a strong relationship with the area, our community and each other.
