Woodland Escape

Winner of seven international awards with incredible cinematography.

NaturePlay – Bring Childhood Back, explores the concept of education through play in nature (Udeskole). NaturePlay is an insipring look at the Scandinvian method of udeskole, which is practiced through forest kindergartens, after school clubs, nature-based play areas, adventure playgrounds and through increased break time at school.

Little Kiwis Nature Play and Woodland Escape are honoured to host the NaturePlay film with its important message and thought-provoking insights. We are super excited to be part of growing the Nature Play movement within New Zealand.

Following the film, we will end with a discussion on the relevance of this film to New Zealand and ask the questions ‘Are our Kiwi children still as connected to nature as we think they are - do they have the same opportunities to play as we did?’

'For any educator who has ever said, “That would be amazing, but”, this film is for you. For any parent who has ever said, “I would love that for my child, but”, this film is for you. For any community who has ever said, “Wouldn’t it be cool! but”, this film is for you. Interspersed with powerful quotes from some of play and education’s biggest thinkers, let’s not forget to mention how stunning the backdrop for this film is. BUT don’t get distracted by it – NaturePlay – Take Childhood Back’s biggest impact will be on your thinking.' Daysofplayblog.
