Exploring Nature Play in Early Childhood Teacher Education: A Pilot Study

The Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide (The Curriculum Council, 2017) has been fine-tuned this year to account for the launching of the Free Quality Kindergarten Education Scheme. A new learning area named “Nature and Living” has been added to the curriculum guide to support children’s exploration of nature. There is increasing need for early childhood education (ECE) teachers to prepare for integrating nature education into the curriculum. However, there is limited professional development opportunities for ECE teachers to learn how to involve the nature education in the curriculum. This project aims to develop innovative learning resources and approaches for supporting in-service teachers and explore the content and pedagogical knowledge in nature education.
