For teachers

Communication is a big part of this program, inspired by Marmosets’ intense social life. Marmosets by nature are agile, creative, love bonding and spending time with each other. Naya Nature Academy children and families will whisper, sing, whistle, listen, and play with all sorts of emotions to become familiar with them. They will cooperate and learn about local botany, discover wildcrafting with tree shadows, taste their own harvest, engage in dramatic play, invent walking stories and create their best nature instrument. They may swell on trees too! Children and parents will be immersed in the natural world, an outstanding way to really understand causes and consequences of natural phenomena. Join on Saturdays for an outdoor familial adventure full of bonding experiences !

This is not a drop-off class : children attend with a parent. Make sure you are available for quality time with your child. Siblings are welcome to enroll : one child = one adult. Parents are responsible for their child’s safety during the programme.

The memories created during our time with these talented instructors will be our personal treasures as well as scaffolds to future contact and learning in nature.

Education counselor for kids and adults. Certificate in early childhood education.

I have always enjoyed working with children and teens, it’s so exciting to do what I love most in nature!​

From: France. Speaks: French, English, Dutch, Spanish and Tamil.

Taking part in the development of Naya Nature makes me immensely happy. It gives me the opportunity to work towards the accomplishment of two of my most important life-objectives: 1. Develop, use and spread the methods of positive education and 2. Create awareness and engagement for nature and its preservation. I have always felt I belong on the field, along with children and their families. My background is that of a teacher, an educator and an education counselor. I worked for the Eco-schools program in France and contributed to developing an eco-center in India. I am addicted to fresh air and green spaces. I can’t wait to meet you!


We will meet rain or shine. Naya Nature provides rain pants. A windbreaker with hood is required. We suggest long comfortable pants that can get dirty and waterproof sneakers rather than rain boots, which are not suitable for climbing or running. As you’ll be in nature, just imitate nature for your clothes: dress like an onion !

We kindly ask you to bring a fruit potluck. Naya Nature provides a cool drink in summer and a hot one in the winter.
