A Kiwi Keeper is a guardian of the natural world. They seek a relationship of reciprocity with Nature.
We've crafted an evidence-based natural science program for children aged 5-7 years.
From ecology to earth science to individual species to wellbeing, the lessons draw on the natural sciences and Kaitiakitanga.
The 10-week program includes the 30-lesson syllabus with a photo ID card and safety lanyard for each student and educator.
The lessons utilise behavioural science, storytelling, play and exploration to educate, inform and empower students.
The Kiwi Keepers syllabus aligns with New Zealand Curriculum strands, such as Nature of Science and Living World.
The lessons include supplementary materials and are ready-to-teach requiring very little to no preparation.
