Client feedback this week says...........Thank you so much Omine for a very inspirational week. Your energy , enthusiasm , and knowledge of the great outdoors, is infectious. Loved your input , and the way our girls (and staff) embraced the experience.
Our mission is to foster rich learning experiences, ecological literacy, Social literacy and healthy living by connecting children to nature through the use of the Nature School model in the early, primary & secondary years of school.
Our vision is for all Kiwi kids to play and learn in Known areas such as Day care centres local Bush, creeks, meadows, farm grasses, mountains, and shorelines with a wise and skilled educator who understands the power of play and child-directed learning. With an over arching goal of how to contribute to a more sustainable world.
At Craftlab Nature School the emphasis is on outdoor learning. Whilst children are attending they will spend a large portion of their time outside, whatever the weather. There are many benefits to being outside, both physically and mentally. The outdoor environment offers unique opportunities for children to develop their gross and fine motor skills. By being outside, deep and meaningful connections are made to the natural environment. Ample blocks of time to engage with nature allow for quiet contemplation, as well as physical and group activities that develop social and emotional literacy. Traditional curriculum areas such as literacy, arts, numeracy and science are readily learned in a meaningful context.
