Developing Early Skills Outdoors

The Developing Early Skills Outdoors series aims to highlight the unique qualities of the outdoor learning environment for teaching basic skills and concepts in maths, literacy and science. The activities are low cost and easy to set up, aiming to reassure practitioners and give them the confidence to plan more learning experiences outdoors. This is further supported with planning guidance, resource ideas, as well as links to the Australian and New Zealand Early Childhood Curricula and advice on observation and assessment.
