Research has established that children learn through play; by doing, by interacting with others and by asking questions. The tactile experience children have handling natural materials makes learning fun and exciting.

The broad spectrum of materials provided by Natural Learning is appropriate for all ages and developmental stages of children in any early educational environment.

Incorporating Natural Learning early education resources into your curriculum will provide aesthetically pleasing, tactile objects from the natural world, and give your children a uniquely New Zealand hands-on experience.
