Notice reference #: 1H9tm1

Winner of seven international awards with incredible cinematography, NaturePlay – Take Childhood Back, explores the concept of education through play in nature (Udeskole). Through comparing the American and Scandinavian education system, NaturePlay is an inspiring look at the Scandinvian method of udeskole, which is practiced through forest kindergartens, after school clubs, nature-based play areas, adventure playgrounds and through increased break time at school. 

Little Kiwis Nature Play in collaboration with Conscious Kids are honoured to host the NaturePlay film with its important message and thought-provoking insights.

Following the film, Celia Hogan, founder of Little Kiwis Nature Play will lead a discussion on the relevance of this film to New Zealand, challenging educational philosophies and policies and emphasising the importance of nature play on a child's holistic development.

Nature Play Take Childhood Back is screening on 23 May @ 7pm in the auditorium at Point Chevalier School and tickets are $23 each.
