Winner of seven international awards with incredible cinematography.

NaturePlay – Take Childhood Back, explores the concept of education through play in nature (Udeskole). NaturePlay is an inspiring look at the Scandinavian method of udeskole, which is practised 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 pleased to be showing this film around New Zealand 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?’

This showing and professional development discussion has been fully funded by NZEI Waikato Area Council, NZEI Huntly branch and Waikato branch. It is an amazing and generous offer that enables ECE teachers and other interested educators to come along for an amazing and inspiring couple of hours!

'For any educator who has ever said, “That would be amazing, 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.
