Welcome to Little Kiwis Nature Play
Many ECE and school teachers, managers and principals want to confidently take the children in their care outdoors. But they’re not sure where to start. And they need to make sure everyone’s on the same page to successfully bring nature into their teaching environment.
At Little Kiwis Nature Play, we run nature-based education professional training and workshops, online courses and teacher only days – specific to your ECE centre or school.
That inspire and motivate teachers and parents to confidently take children outdoors to nature instead of being stuck inside wondering where to begin.
