Little Forest Feet is based in Aongatete (30 minutes north of Tauranga) and runs Nature Nest and Nature Tots Playgroup for families and the children from birth to 5 years.  

We hope to also set up an evening session of nature craft for mothers of all ages and stages and a weekend Nature Session for older children... watch this space! There is more information on our website under 'offerings' and if you are interested we would love you to register your interest and we will get in touch when they are starting.


Little Forest Feet

Our Ethos

We are advocates for the importance of play and child led learning; fostering imagination, creativity, use of real life tools, music, storytelling- all in the great outdoors, whatever the weather. 

We want to create a space that welcomes all parents/carers and children, where they can connect with nature, themselves and others and come away feeling fulfilled, nourished and supported. A sense of belonging. 

We are committed to developing the nature site, hoping to create a beautiful wild woodland full of diversity, at the same time hoping to create a community of families wanting to become just a little bit wilder themselves...

Current and Potential Future Offerings


Nature Tots Playgroup

A calm, outdoor, nature based playgroup focused on children aged *18 months to 5 years and their parent/carers (*younger siblings welcome). An opportunity to connect, play, nourish and re wild.

The children learn how to use tools, learn about nature and have campfires. We also come together during the sessions for morning tea and story/singing.

Thursdays 9:30-11:30am.

Basket and Wild Flowers

Mothers Evening Craft Circle

A time and space for mothers at any stage in their motherhood journey (pregnancy and beyond) to come together and do something for themselves. An opportunity to explore various different crafts using nature materials, whilst having a chat and a nibble on some treats.

Hope to run in the future. 


Nature Nest

A session for our youngest explorers. For families with children from birth to 3 years to come together to have a chat, a cuppa and connect with nature. The whole 1.5 hours will be free play and exploration of our wild and wonderful garden.

Wow what an incredible playgroup! The activities, crafts and play opportunities result in endless joy. My little 2yr old has so much fun with the other kiddies and it’s the highlight of his week. My 4 month old also enjoys being out in the calming nature. As a mother I leave feeling inspired and uplifted. Sian, the facilitator has an amazing ability to teach and nurture- thank you!'

What a fabulous couple of days my little person has had at forest school this week. I was nervous about her settling into a new setting and group of children, Sian totally put my mind at rest and made sure a fun time was had by all. My daughter is already asking to go we will be seeing you soon! xx'

I took my 10 week old to Little Forest Feet and was blown away by the setting. Sian and her husband Adam have created an amazing environment with endless provocations for toddlers and preschool children where they can explore and take risks. My little one enjoyed being outdoors, laying on a mat while looking up at the trees and taking everything in. He ended up sleeping for most of the session which gave me chance to chat to other parents! The session ended with singing, story time and a lovely morning tea. Little Forest Feet is a very special place and I would 100% recommend it
