We run workshops that help to build the confidence of educators working with preschoolers or primary school students in nature, AKA the outdoor classroom.

What are the impacts of over scheduling, technology, urbanisation and cotton wool wrapping on our children’s development?
Come enjoy an information evening presented by Celia Hogan, Founder of Little Kiwis Nature Play, looking at the concept of educating children through play in nature. Celia will explore the research, the barriers, the benefits and finish with some practical ways you can support your children to spend more time outdoors and nurture them via nature.
