A Sustainable Learning Area (SLA) turns an outdoor classroom into a Sustainability focussed, interactive outdoor learning area, full of S.T.E.M. teaching aids and endless learning opportunities!


Our SLA’s 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.
