An SLA is a Sustainability focussed, interactive outdoor learning area, or “Sustainable Learning Area”.
These Outdoor Learning areas combine habitat creation, permaculture & water wise gardening to create child friendly, engaging, sustainable spaces that foster a care for the natural world. 
These playful ‘learning landscapes’ teach children about nature, soils, rainfall, habitat and food production while providing an interdisciplinary learning link to a much wider range of learning possibilities.
