Rose Major
TLN Presenter

Rose has worked as an early childhood teacher, a primary school teacher and a playgroup facilitator in both indoor and outdoor settings. She has been part of the not-for-profit network and professional learning group the Early Childhood Outdoor Learning Network (ECOLN) since it’s inception in early 2014. Rose grew up hiking and camping in the UK and re-discovered her love for the outdoors after moving to Australia 17 years ago. Rose has a passion for sharing her love of nature with young children and families and believes that fostering a love for the outdoors in young children is a necessary step for promoting sustainable thinking. She would like to acknowledge the influence of First People’s perspectives on deepening her understanding of what it means to live, work and play on another’s country. Rose is currently working as a supported playgroup facilitator as well as running the Nature Kindergarten Facilitator Demonstration Project. Run jointly with ECOLN, the project aims to support kinders and early childhood centres to move towards offering off-site outdoor learning programs.
