Connecting with practice: Opportunities for learning in natural spaces


This resource contains a vignette depicting a two-year-old child and some three- and four-year-old children in a group setting in an outdoor space. Two experiences captured in the vignette are: an educator alongside a very young child holding a chicken; and several children playing in a sand area with water, pipes and sand. Two supporting documents offer viewing notes and general information.
