THE HOME OF EARLY LEARNING IN VASSE

Where Learning Unfolds Naturally

We believe every child has the right to a respectful environment which fosters harmony through balanced creative relationships and possibilities. In such an environment, and in the company of caring adults, a child may come to understand themselves and the world, building confidence and respect as a citizen of the earth.

Nature’s Atelier brings practical wisdom about children and how they engage with their world.

The best of early childhood practise including the social constructivist pedagogy of Reggio Emilia, the wisdom of Nature Education, the engagement of creative and scientific learning and the emerging science of brain research are all considered when designing authentic and developmentally appropriate learning opportunities.

Our aim is to provide warm and inviting environments which welcome and nurture children and embrace families as partners in a community of learners.
