Nature Play WA was contracted by the Western Australian Department of Education (The Department) to undertake a small research project examining three key areas and providing recommendations based on the findings.
The three key areas were:
• Designing for play;
• Designing for outdoor learning; and
• Beyond infrastructure, where policy meets place.
Nature Play WA undertook a comprehensive literature review that considers three critical elements to improving student experience and learning in school settings: outdoor learning, outdoor play and the school environment.
