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
