You are Unique. Never before and never again will there be another child just like you.
We try to make each child feel comfortable with their identity and to show them how special they are.
We need to SUPPORT and RESPECT each other, because of the delicate and complex nature of life.
Harold helps over 11,000 kids in the Auckland Central region.
Each child going through the programme costs $20.

Life Education is an on-going health based education programme that aims to educate and empower children to make healthy choices so they can live full and healthy lives.
How do we do it?
We capture their imagination. We take children on a journey in Mobile Classrooms, equipped with sophisticated technology to create an extraordinary learning experience.
Our Educators are registered teachers with the ‘X-Factor’ and along with our mascot HAROLD, make this a fun-filled and informative journey. The reaction to these lessons have been overwhelmingly positive from the children and the teachers. We are seen as leaders amongst external education providers to schools.

I think it's very special the way the classroom is set up and it helps the children to imagine the scenarios put forward to them.
We believe the key topics covered by life education are essential in early education and having a new/exciting learning environment engages the children and enables these key topics to stick with the children.
I believe it is the environment that the learning takes place in is the point of difference.
Engaging methods of presentation and getting to know the kids at a personal level.
Itâ€™s at the children's level, well planned out lessons that have key messages the children need to gain. Itâ€™s an amazing engaging, environment that make children want to keep going back. The teacher is friendly and enthusiastic. Fantastic experience all round!
The children really enjoy learning in a different environment. They really LOVE Harold.
Helping students to build positive relationships and understand themselves and others.
The educator always remembers each and every child's name. How does she do that? It's quite amazing!! Even an extra boy who was visiting for the day. She always remembers them from one year to the next.
Life Ed is a valuable tool to enhance the learning of children. They love Harold and their use of models and physical activities makes the children much more engaged.
Their lessons fit well with the NZ curriculum and I like how there's a practical part for children to do lots of sharing and reflecting. . . Workbook is fantastic.
Approaching current issues that children can face at new schools and in the playground. Providing specific examples through stories(video) and allowing the children to discuss in a well-managed and positive environment. The caravan itself (and Harold) is a place that is special to the children and they really look forward to visits each year.
All children are accepted and their ideas and backgrounds acknowledged. Messages about health and well-being are positively and effectively communicated (by the educator, props and technology), therefore easily remembered by the children.
