State of Nature Play
Kids In Nature Network and partner organisations have concluded a state-wide report of nature play, bush kinder and outdoor learning providers and initiatives in Victoria.
Our report identifies a growing and unmet demand for nature play, outdoor learning and bush kinder programs in Victoria. The report identifies the key barriers and areas in need of support.

We posed the following research questions:
1. What nature play, bush kinder and outdoor learning programs are currently available in Victoria? (Who is out there and what are they doing?)
2. What are the key enablers and barriers for existing programs, and for new programs?
3. How can these groups be better assisted to achieve their goals?
The survey results are the most comprehensive dataset gathered in Victoria on the sector to date.
Kids In Nature Network partnered with the following organisations on this initiative:
Department of Health and Human Services
Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria
Early Childhood Outdoor Learning Network
