About the Early Childhood Outdoor Learning Network
The Early Childhood Outdoor Learning Network exists to promote and support outdoor learning for preschool children in Australia. We bring educators together to share our experience of outdoor teaching.
We arrange Gatherings to visit outdoor programs. We share information - be it practical, pedagogical, philosophical or political.
We promote the value of outdoor play for young children. In April 2016 we hosted our first Conference on outdoor education for early childhood, and we plan to host another in April 2017.
We are a volunteer organisation. We are practitioners sharing with other practitioners. At the moment, we are based in Victoria, however we are open to educators anywhere in Australia.
The Early Childhood Outdoor Learning Network is free to join and shares knowledge freely. If you would like to join our mailing list, please sign up here. We also invite you to contribute to our blog.
