Welcome, this week Nicole Halton from Inspired EC explains how to improve outside areas to increase opportunities for nature play, and meet our Educator in the spotlight Shelley Carlin from Marjorie Mann Lawley Day Care Centre.
Natural spaces, risky places
By Nicole Halton, Inspired EC

Australia is in the midst of a nature play revolution. Every second parent I speak to is concerned about children being indoors, on screens and lacking in the kind of imaginative, exploratory, outdoor childhood that they themselves enjoyed.

An increase in professional learning, resources and opportunities that inspire educators to look to the natural environment are also an indication of the current commitment to nature-based education. But despite the nay-sayers who suggest otherwise – nature play is not a trend.
Educator in the spotlight Shelley Carlin
This week we are proud to introduce you to Shelley Carlin, the director of Marjorie Mann Lawley Day Care Centre, whose career in the early childhood sector started when she was 14 years old.

What is your full name?

My name is Shelley Carlin and I am 37 years young!
