Teaching Solutions believes in learning. We help educators teach and children learn.
Our high-quality resources are strongly grounded in what works in the early childhood setting and the classroom, giving educators tools and strategies they need to make a difference. Written by highly-experienced educators and authors, they are well-designed and easy to use.
Designed to maximise young children’s potential and extend educators professional practice, our early years resources offer essential information, guidance on management and professional development, advice, innovative ideas and inspiration.
Our high-interest primary and secondary school resources have been developed to provide students with the skills necessary to become analytical thinkers, problem solvers and idea generators, and succeed in a multinational work environment.

Developing Early Maths Skills Outdoors
Activity ideas and best practice for teaching and learning outside
The Developing Early Skills Outdoors series aims to highlight the unique qualities of the outdoor learning environment for teaching basic skills and concepts in maths, literacy and science. The activities are low cost and easy to set up, aiming to reassure practitioners and give them the confidence to plan more learning experiences outdoors. This is further supported with planning guidance, resource ideas, as well as links to the Australian and New Zealand Early Childhood Curricula and advice on observation and assessment.
