"Exposure to natural environments improves children's cognitive development by improving their awareness, reasoning and observational skills." (Pyle 2002)

The Eco Centre provides support for Early Childhood educators, offering a variety of activities, as incursions, for Early Learning centres. 

Exposure to 'nature play' is an essential to early childhood learning. When we make links to sustainability and environment education in the early years we provide an important awareness which will shape the behaviours and skills of our children well into their futures. Access to nature, clean air, water and soil, are essential to a child's wellbeing.
