Conscious Kids Vision
(personal and environmental)
Little Seeds for a Better Future
We provide children with opportunities for free play in nature, within a framework of respect for themselves, others, and the environment.
We provide training for adults supporting children’s free play in nature.
Children need time and space to follow their own interests through play,
Play is the ideal pathway to meaningful and authentic learning,
No learning happens in isolation: Children learn holistically, through engagement of their emotional, social, physical, spiritual, and intellectual capacities, in connection with the natural world,
Children learn best in mixed aged, democratic groups where their voice is heard and they have a say in how the group functions,
Children need the opportunity to take risks and set their own challenges in order to become confident, capable adults
Awareness of, and respect for te ao Māori, is the responsibility of all those living in Aotearoa, and
Learning about the natural world is essential for children’s wellbeing and in ensuring a sustainable future for humanity.
