Opportunities for early childhood environmental education

children and nature

QECSN believes early childhood learning for sustainability is about having a vision, thinking for the future, empowering change and positive and practical learning for and about sustainability.
QECSN stands for Queensland Early Childhood Sustainability Network. it was established in 1997 and holds professional development days and network meetings.
Our aim is to build a strong collaborative network of support and inspiration for those who are working with young children by providing opportunities to share and learn together. We are planning to organize formal get-togethers, centre visits, workshops, and share initiatives, resource development and an informative quarterly newsletter.
