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.
