A place where children are inspired through nature

Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten, for children aged 2 to 8 years old


About Us

Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten was founded in 2015 on the idea that a progressive education model can be combined with embracing the outdoors to create a vibrant, innovative Kindergarten where children's inherent desire to learn about themselves and their world is nurtured.

Guiding Principles

Nature Nurtures

We follow a progressive education model: that prepares children for “active participation in a democratic society, in the context of a child-centered environment, and with an enduring commitment to social justice” Tom Little.

We are influenced by the philosophies of Scandinavian and German Kindergartens which respect the importance of outdoor experience for exploration, learning and development.

Respect: we promote respect for the child by viewing them as a competent individual in need of secure relationships, consistency, challenge and risk, autonomy, time to play without interruption and freedom to explore their world.
