Environmental Education in Early Childhood

“In a country where the outdoor lifestyle of bush and beach is iconic, it is a paradox that the next generation is increasingly cooped up indoors or playing in synthetic outdoor playspaces- places where there is not a tree to climb, a cicada nymph shell to discover or a mud pie to be moulded. Is this what we want for our children?” ~ Patti

We acknowledge and pay respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, and their elders past, present and future as the traditional custodians of the land on which we are located.  We extend out acknowledgement to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait nations across Australia, their elders, ancestors, cultures, heritage and their continuing connection to their country.
