This information is about two surveys that we send out:
- The parent / carer survey, sent to parents or carers who have registered children in the Nature Play QLD Passport to an Amazing Childhood program; and
- The educator / group leader survey, sent to teachers, instructors or leaders who have registered their class or group in the program.
What is the purpose of the surveys?
The surveys are one way to contribute to ensuring the Nature Play program remains relevant and caters for the outdoor play needs of you and your children. At Nature Play QLD, we understand that the success of this program is dependent on the kids, and all involved, having a positive experience with the program. Your insights are extremely valuable in making sure the Nature Play program 'grows legs' and gets more Queensland kids playing outside and in nature more often.
To help ensure the Passport to an Amazing Childhood program is meeting the needs of you and your children, we want to start a conversation with you. One part of this conversation is a pair of short surveys created to help inform whether things are working well, or where we may be able to modify the program for better outcomes.
Parents and Carers
The first survey is to find out how Queenslanders are currently Nature Playing.
We will be distributing a couple of follow-up surveys, six months apart, to provide an opportunity for you to continue your feedback on the program, and share your stories about your Nature Play QLD experience. This means you as a parent / carer have an important role to play in the long-term development of Nature Play, and we hope you choose to be part of the ongoing feedback process.
Educators and Group Leaders
This survey is designed to capture background information about your group, institution / organisation, about you as an educator / group leader, and your observations of any behaviour changes by children in your group as a result of participating in the program.
Who is collecting this information?
QORF – the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation – is responsible for implementing Nature Play QLD, and is administering this survey.
Is the survey anonymous?
The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. You may be sent one reminder e-mail about the survey. The survey will remain open for approximately one month.
If you have any enquiries about this survey or require assistance to complete it, please contact Nature Play QLD on 07 3367 1989.
Thanks again for contributing your feedback, and further supporting the need to ensure our children have the childhood we remember. We look forward to hearing from you!
