Sign The Petition!

Forest Kindergartens are popular overseas. It is suprising that they haven’t taken off in New Zealand – actually there is a reason. The legislation currently doesn’t allow it. I want to change that and make Nature Kindergartens an option in New Zealand. I have sent a submission to the Minister of Education that proposes a change to the legislation. This petition supports the submission. To find out more about the change to the legislation and to sign the petition click the button below.

What People Are Saying

Celia has a real passion and a lot of knowledge around getting children exploring their natural environments outside. The sessions that Celia run are inspiring too. Highly recommend.

Thanks for leading such a great discussion, I really think it cemented the evening to our NZ context especially in terms of which direction we want our education sector to head in.


An outstanding presentation of an approach to learning that is desperately needed in these times of mental health fragility among our young people.
