for families, friendship and fun
Welcome to Farm Friends,
Farm Friends has been providing authentic real-life experiences for up to 36 children per day, between the ages of two - five since 1997. In all weather, children explore our 10-acre section that is blessed with a wide variety of natural playscapes. Including our forest, creeks, farm and many more beautiful opportunities to develop a strong and secure relationship with papatuanuku (earth mother).
“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it" - David Sobel
Farm friends is a place where children are entitled to autonomy, leading their curriculum with the support of their kaiako (teachers) as they embark on authentic experiences that support their natural urges, discovering through play who they are and finding their place in the world around them.
