Fran Hughes, Sue Elliott, Karen Anderson, Barbara Chancellor

"Equip your students with the theoretical and practical knowledge to thrive outdoors in natural learning environments.

Early Years Learning in Australian Natural Environments provides pre-service and practising teachers with the knowledge and skills to connect children with nature through outdoor play and learning. Rich with contemporary theory, research, practical guidance and provocations, this text addresses a range of topics related to Immersive Nature Play Programs in the early years. These include the benefits of learning in natural spaces, First Nations People’s perspectives, understandings about pedagogical interactions and policies, and education for sustainability and risk management.

Written by an experienced team of Australian authors, this book will support pre-service teachers in developing a deep understanding of how nature-based play and learning can promote children’s wellbeing and development."
