Nature Play WA is excited to offer education based, pedagogical professional learning opportunities.
As WA's leading advocacy organisation for outdoor, active play and learning with children, Nature Play WA has extensive experience in delivering innovative and engaging professional development for educators.
And our newest courses - Outdoor Learning Framework for Early Years Educators - will soon be available online! Watch this space for news!
Aligning with the Department of Education's Focus 2019 Initiative, our educator workshops emphasise the role of play-based learning in a balanced curriculum, and offer a wealth of tools, resources and support for teachers to implement play-based learning in their schools and early learning centres.
"Play provides the most natural and meaningful means by which children can construct knowledge and understandings, practise skills, immerse themselves naturally in a broad range of literacy and numeracy and engage in productive and intrinsically motivated learning environments." - Kathy Walker (2007) Play Matters.
You don't need a specially designed nature playspace or a national park on your doorstep to take learning and play outdoors. Nature Play WA's workshops are designed specifically for WA educators, by WA educators, to be delivered in any outdoor space!
