At Nurture@Home Childcare & Education we are passionate about supporting children to connect with nature and Papatuanuku.

At our weekly NatureFocus the environments offer a variety of possibilities for exploring, planning, reasoning & learning as the children are able to study, discover, investigate and search.

We have been operating our NatureFocus for over 8 years, meeting weekly in the outdoors to provide children with opportunities to connect with nature and explore local environments, developing a sense of belonging in their community and an attachment with nature. Re-visiting familiar settings encourages the children to develop confidence, and our children know they belong and have a sense of connection to the environment. At Nurture@Home Childcare & Education the children’s relationship to Papatūānuku is based on whakapapa, respect and aroha.
