A recording of this webinar is now available to watch here.


Whilst there has been a growing interest in outdoor learning within ECEC (Early Childhood Education and Care), little is known about provision for under twos.

Similarly, despite increasing public concern about young children’s connection and relationship with the natural world, the outdoor experiences of babies and toddlers has been largely ignored.

This free webinar will share initial findings from a research project funded by the Froebel Trust focused on outdoor provision in babyrooms in Kent.

Aimed to foster collaboration and to raise the profile of this important area of practice, the seminar will also include presentations from members of Early Childhood Outdoors and opportunities to discuss issues and consider actions.

This webinar is aimed at researchers, educators and anyone interested early childhood education and the care of young children.

The webinar is hosted by the Froebel Trust and supported by Canterbury Christ Church University, The Open University, The University of Wolverhampton and Early Childhood Outdoors.
