Tui Room Forest Walks

The Tui room has recently introduced Forest Walks into our programme planning. Attached is a reading outlining principles for effectively engaging children with nature. The Forest Walks have began with the transition to school group and we have chosen Central Park as our location to explore as it is the location of Moturoa Stream, the Awa we identify with. We plan to engage all children with learning experiences in nature taking into consideration individual learning needs and stages of development. Here is an information brochure by the Department of Conservation.

The value of Rough and Tumble play

Rough and tumble play holds value for young children in relation to their physical, social and educational development.  The physical benefits of energy release, exercise and practice of motor skills might seem obvious but there are significant benefits in other developmental areas as well. Rough and tumble play holds a social dynamic which aids in the development of social competency as children learn about themselves and others.  Read more
