Nature Kids is an Early Childhood Education Centre in Motueka for 2 to 6 year olds with a foundation philosophy “let nature be your teacher”.

Taking ideas from nature kindergartens in Europe where children learn through nature and build strong connections with the natural world, as much time as possible is spent outside.

Nature Kids, set on 1.5 hectares, has a country environment which is close to town with a friendly, welcoming, nuturing homelike atmosphere and extensive outdoor facilities utilising what nature has provided.

We want Nature's Kids.....

“to be competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body, and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society.”

Nature Kids Motueka Kindy Pre-School ECE

Be prepared for messy kids……

Children are fostered to develop and extend their physical skills  in our pre-school's natural surroundings by presenting them with an exciting and challenging developmentally appropriate environment where they build confidence, independence and social skills, take risks and are given the freedom and space to explore, discover and learn at their own pace.
