Born Wise Education

Time & space for childhood
Time & space for authentic learning


It's time to put the Garden back in Kindergarten

Born Wise aims to simplify education. We believe slowing down offers a powerful antidote to the busy-ness of the modern world. We believe play and being outdoors is soothing for the nervous system. 


We tell stories. We read books. We create Art. We create time and space for play. We honour social & emotional learning. We prioritise relationships.


 Inspired by nature & the nourishment of the inner world, Born Wise empowers
children and adults to revolutionise education from their own backyards. 

Via simple methods. By slowing down. It’s not rocket science. We believe it is way more important than rocket science! 

Our classes, courses and consults offer an
opportunity for the whole family to experience a different way to school.


Education of the past, present & future

We believe it is time to take the roof off education. Humans are born with an innate capacity for learning. This differs from an educational approach that views children as empty vessels that must be filled with facts and information. The Born Wise philosophy instead views the child as infinitely wise and places emphasis on nourishing a life-long love of learning. Combining 20 years of educational experience and research, we have created programs and teachings for all ages.

Your whole family will experience a sense of empowerment and wellbeing, revealing each individual’s unique potential and contribution.

What the kids are saying...

“Education is what remains after one has
forgotten what one has learned in school.”

‘Empowered is how I felt. I finally felt like a strong Mumma, guiding and teaching my babes in the wild. We spent the morning exploring, immersed and learning in nature and I’ve never felt my heart sing more. My soul is on fire and I’m sure it’s because you’ve awakened the Mother Energy in me.’
