Nature Kids Weekday Sessions

Nature kids learning through adventure weekday sessions


Nature Kids – Weekday Sessions.

Nature Kids weekday sessions are nature-based learning experiences for kids aged 7 - 12. Perfect for homeschoolers or as a one-day* alternative from mainstream school.

Facilitated by Kathy Broadhead, a qualified and experienced teacher and environmental educator. Each day we will explore nature across a broad theme by blending focused educational experiences, child-led learning and nature play. Each session will build on the next, so ideally kids join one day a week for the whole 8 weeks.

At Nature Kids, our Kaupapa is to be curious, creative, caring and collaborative. We investigate, discuss, create, take notes, draw and explore nature, outside all day.

Our days are a mix of adventurous and creative nature-based experiences. We spend our day exploring nature in public areas (this term in Mount Maunganui). We have a base set up with shelter but are off exploring different nature spaces so this involves some walking with our backpacks on.
