Why Choose My Treehut

as your child’s early learning centre?

The single-minded goal of the teachers at My Treehut is to give children the best possible start to their ongoing education. Our skilled teachers are here to encourage, extend or let the children learn alone. We like to read each situation to see what we feel is necessary for the children to gain the most from their learning experience – whether this be a teacher to help the child tie a rope to a tree, use the computer or books to research a type of bird they have seen in the garden, or to leave the child to problem solve alone, or join in with them and their peers to create a space ship.

Established by Kirsty Darvill, My Treehut makes the most of the indoor-outdoor connection encouraging children to play amongst the natural, tree-filled setting. The centre has interactive experiences such as a worm farm, vegetable garden, a safe outdoor stream, lots of ICT and of course a treehut.

At My Treehut we value having nature on our doorstep, children love to explore and we like to let this process be as natural as possible. Our learning space has been developed in a way that allows the children to use their skills to create new spaces and activities as they choose. Our beautiful big garden has plenty of space for the children to run and explore. It also has a great sandpit, man-made stream, swings, trees to climb, a willow hut, a bike track through the trees and of course a very cool treehut.

The kitchen is the hub of a home, and it is no different at My Treehut. We use a sustainable log burner to heat My Treehut. This building has been designed to allow for smaller group projects, individual activities and whole centre times.

We want the children and their whānau to feel comfortable here, there is space for sitting, lying, reading, drawing, dancing, constructing and much more.
