Enable full time nature based early childhood education in NZ

Reason for signing

  • Under fives are spending much longer in day care than ever before because of the financial demands and constraints on parents. This mean that these children are spending huge parts of their development in enclosed and managed environments, particularly the under 2's . Children need a wide variety of challenging and stimulating experiences to develop to their potential . The outdoors and natural environment can provide all this and more, for happier, healthier and more resilient children.
