Learning in Nature
Children need more time outdoors in touch with the natural environment. Australian and international research informs us that children who spend more time outdoors in nature are happier, healthier, stronger, Kinder and smarter.
Appropriate Risk Taking
Children are capable. They can be trusted to make wise decisions. Parents and educators need to support children as they take the appropriate risks and face the challenges essential to well rounded learning.
Natural Materials as the Tools of Learning
Twigs, leaves, flowers, the earth, rain and wind. These are the best play resources for children.
Children need to be outdoors connecting with nature if we expect them to look after the environment. Today's children are the environmental stewards of the future.
