More about the Eco Learning Network

The Early Childhood Outdoor Learning Network is a forum for educators to share their experience of providing early childhood education outdoors, learn from each other, and promote outdoor learning for young children.

The ECOLN runs an annual Pedagogy & Practice Conference, Gatherings to visit nature kindergarten sites, and training for services wanting to get a nature program off the ground. We maintain a map of nature kindergarten programs, and a mailing list.  They engage in promotion of nature kindergarten and children's access to outdoor play; and aim to connect teachers and services to each other, and learn from each other. 

Their professional learning programs include a strong commitment to acknowledging and working with First Nations people.
