Emma Callis - Parent
Our son started in the Te Miro Early childhood centre and continued on into the Te Miro Forest School when he turned 5. The opportunities he’s been exposed to is more than what some children will experience in a lifetime. His depth of knowledge of life skills was noticeable in every aspect of his life and was transferred into other areas as the children learn best through play and that’s exactly what they do at Te Miro Forest School. Through play based learning our son learnt social and cognitive skills, matured emotionally, and gained the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments. This place is heaven on earth for children and I couldn’t recommend it enough!
Sarah Ross - Parent
When you walk into the Forest ECE you are transported into a young persons wonderland - our daughter couldn’t agree more!
We love the kaupapa of the Forest ECE supported by caring and experienced teachers we are so thrilled for our daughter to be attending.
She comes home happily tired from adventurous days in the native bush to the hut with her friends, stories of making pikelets over the fireplace and how the eels ate one of her teachers tuna fish. We are so grateful to be part of The Forest ECE whānau and couldn’t recommend this experience for your young ones more.
Anita Magor - Parent
Our son Alfie attends the forest program and we cannot recommend this enough. He has shown such big leap of confidence in attending this program. He absolutely loves being out doors and running free with his friends and wonderful teachers who help him with any obstacles that might appear (like getting your gumboot stuck in the mud). He always comes home and says what great adventures he’s had. This is such a unique and amazing program that we feel has benefited Alfie greatly.
Olivia - Parent
The Forest is magical, fresh air, nature, animals and fun. My daughter's excitement each day bubbles over knowing there will be muddy puddles to jump in, hills to climb and slide, and adventures and treasures to find in the forest. This is the ultimate experience, one that our child can have every day.
