Welcome to In Nature Education!

The vision of In Nature Education is to foster the child’s lifelong connection to the natural world and themselves. We strongly believe that free-play is essential for mental, physical and emotional health, wellbeing and development. We want to promote independence, confidence, resilience, self-awareness and respect for our whenua as well as for ourselves and others by learning and playing in nature. This can be achieved through bushcraft, environmental conservation, climbing trees, building huts, scrambling hills, looking for bugs, and letting the children decide where to engage and when.
