Haven't Purchased This Course Yet But Want To Know More? 

This is a step by step online video course for Early Childhood Educators who want to set up inspiring outdoor learning environments but aren't sure where to start or what to do to create change...

So if you'd like to discover the simple steps you can follow to take your outdoor environment and program from boring to inspired and interesting, through ‘outside the box’ ideas and the addition of low cost, recycled and everyday resources, more nature based materials, open ended learning opportunities and a simple play based program that combines with your outdoor environment to intentionally and incidentally extend learning and engage children daily then...

The How To Design, Setup & Program For Outdoor Spaces Course Is A Great Fit For You!


The ideas, strategies and handouts are suitable for Family Daycare, Early Learning Centres, Preschool, Kindergarten, Occasional Care Services & Outside School Hours Care. If you'd like to see the topics covered in this course, scroll to the bottom of this page to review the 'Course Essentials' box.

* Personalised Certificate, Visual tools, Mp3 Audio & Handouts are included as part of this online professional development.

Let's Get Inspired To Create Outdoor Learning...

Welcome Empowered Ed! I'm SO GLAD you could join me here and I know you are going to find it useful in your role to provide opportunities for engaging outdoor learning - activities, environments and planning.


This is your Design, Setup & Program For Outdoor Learning course homepage where you can choose a module from the menu bar (to the side if on a computer - tap the lines to drop down if using a mobile device). 


Each learning module has it's own lesson page so you know when you have completed all the lessons for that module. Make sure to click the 'I'm Done Here' buttons at the bottom of the workshop video pages as you progress for an easy way to move to the next page and lesson.

Please begin with Module 1 - Workshop 1 and proceed through the modules until you reach #7 - I advise not to skip ahead as the lessons all connect with each other. 


You can work your way through the course at your own pace and come back as many times as you need to watch all of the lesson videos. 


Make sure to click on the green buttons under each video to download the applicable module handouts and/or tools for that lesson. Choose what is helpful to you - there is no need to overwhelm yourself by trying everything!

Hi, I’m Jodie - an early childhood educator, mentor and blogger. I have worked in many different roles across the human services, family services and early childhood professions over the past 35 years so it's likely I have already walked in similar shoes to your own. I know what is helpful (and definitely NOT helpful or useful) to educators because I am one too. I  enjoy supporting and mentoring thousands of educators every year through my popular website The Empowered Educator and practical blog posts, activity ideas, factsheets, free e-guides, online training, membership hub, e-courses, Facebook community, webinars and e-books.
