Developing kiwi kids through play, learning and nature.

Everyone Out is a not for profit social enterprise founded to help kiwi kids develop through play, learning and nature. We run events for families, holiday programmes and nature school.

Our Programmes

Our nature school is an education programme where learning happens through self-directed learning in nature

Our holiday programmes provide a child-led play environment allowing them to follow their own interests

Our adventure treasure hunts get families out having fun, moving and working together in local natural areas

Our Story

Everyone Out Limited was set up by Rachel Prier in 2016. Since then Rachel has run events at the Wellington Botanic Garden, Otari-Wilton’s Bush and Mt Victoria to encourage tamariki and their whānau to get out and enjoy the amazing green spaces Wellington has to offer. In October 2018 the first Everyone Out Holiday Programme was run in Crofton Downs.

The nature play holiday programme was very successful, with a lot of positive feedback from both parents and tamariki. In January 2020, Rachel hired experienced kaiako and opened Everyone Out Nature School in Crofton Downs, Wellington. Everyone Out is growing, in 2021, a second location on Wellington's South Coast will be opening and running both holiday programmes and nature school.
