Forest Schools

Forest Schools, more than just a day spent outdoors

Our tamariki and whānau enjoy great sessions at our Forest Schools. The little ones just can’t wait to explore the great outdoors, and just generally have a good time interacting with nature.

Our forest school sessions operate under the guiding principle of Te Whāriki Learning Objectives of Nature Play – Taiao, where children gain an understanding of both their own environment and the wider environment.

Top Benefits

  • Confidence: children build autonomy whilst enjoying the time and space to explore the surroundings around them
  • Knowledge and Awareness: As children engage in outdoor play, they become more interested in their surroundings and gain respect for the environment around them
  • Build Social Skills: As children play and interact with other children in their playgroup, they develop increased awareness of the consequences of their actions towards their peers
  • Motivation: Nothing excites children more than the thought of being outside, especially in the woodlands. Children develop more interest and the ability to concentrate over longer periods of time.
  • Physical and Sensory Motor Skills: Children play hard outdoors, thus boosting their stamina and sensory motor skills even further
