Spend 'one day a week' immersed in a Kahikatea forest, located at Karamu in the Waikato.
A Perfectly Balanced Sensory Experience
Into Nature School offers a perfectly balanced sensory experience. It inspires the mind, and it is the ideal setting for evaluating risks and accepting challenges.
"Kids are physically tired but mentally and emotionally revived after a day at
Nature School." Quote from a parent
Tree-mendous News for 2020!
We're so excited we want to shout this from the tallest trees!
We're opening a second day each week in 2020! We'll be open every Thursday and Friday during term time.
Spaces are limited due to our educator/student ratio which ensures your child has the care and guidance they need to fully flourish in our native bush setting.
We'd love to see your child join us in 2020!
Meet the Directors/Educators
Meet our Wonderful Team of Educators
Meet Mary - She's been teaching for over a hundred years. Why? Because she loves it! She has a youthful spring in her step, she's super fit and she loves the outdoors. We think she's a walking botanical encyclopedia because it seems there's nothing she doesn't know about the native plants in our Kahikatea forest. Mary loves forest schooling for the authentic real life experiences it provides children, especially as it's completely device free.
Meet Noel - he's our Health & Safety expert. He's also our guy that gets stuff done! He's handy with the tools and always busy being creative, constructing something that makes Into Nature School just that little bit special. No job is too big or too little for Noel - he's just happy to be making a difference to the lives of the children in a practical way.
