OUR Vision

Our Vision

At Nature School Dunedin we are passionate about getting children outdoors. We believe in a balance of creative play and skill-based learning. Our mission is to use nature as the third teacher to inspire creative hearts, hands and minds.

We strive to:
  • inspire a feeling of joy, curiosity and connectedness with nature
  • offer opportunities for hands-on experiences encompassing different learning styles
  • encourage children to direct their own learning
  • facilitate opportunities for risk-taking, resilience and resourcefulness
  • teach the importance of meaningful interactions and collaboration with peers
  • foster a life-long relationship with conservation values and sustainability

"If you can light the spark of curiosity in a child, they will learn without any further assistance, very often. Children are natural learners."

― Sir Ken Robinson
