Outdoor Classroom Day 

Looking for a new type of camp experience that matches your play-based philosophy?
An EOTC experience that connects children with the natural spaces right outside their door? We’ll come to you!

 

A full or half-day of hands-on learning in nature, either on your school grounds or at a local reserve.  Activities may include shelter construction, fire starting and cooking, whittling, harakeke harvest and weaving, art activities, group games, and ecology exploration, depending on the environmental conditions and interests of the children.

"Thank you! We had a fabulous time and were amazed by the depth of learning evident."

 

"Everything seemed very well thought through, from the resources available to the logistics of managing children in an outdoor, and unpredictable environment."

Junk Play - Loose Parts Fun

A fantastic way to kick-start your school’s use of loose parts for learning.  We will visit your school with a plentiful amount of materials and lead a 1 ½ hr session of up to 100 children (max 3 sessions per day) which sets up expectations around appropriate usage and highlights the links to the NZ curriculum, in particular, the learning areas of science, maths and technology.

What teachers are saying about CK JUNK PLAY:
 

“We have had such lovely feedback from the 'Junk Play' day from both the students and particularly from the parents who helped on the day. It was great thanks.”

 

“We really loved the programme. All of the children were engaged and had a wonderful time. It became very apparent to us as teachers how important play is. I loved the opportunity it gave me as a teacher to support those children who struggle socially.”

 

“A fabulous session that the students thoroughly enjoyed. Very well led and facilitated- wish we had it permanently in the playground.”

 

“Thank you so much for yesterday. It was just wonderful to see the children so engaged, following all our values and persevering to problem solve and extend their ideas. Your discussion afterward was fantastic too. You helped the children to make some amazing connections to the great learning that was happening. It was so inspiring.”
