Naturally Authentic Learning


Hoopla Education is an education company for 3yrs + specialized in nature-inspired, sustainable education taught within a Project Based Learning (PBL) framework. Our projects fully engage even the youngest learners, as we adopt a multi-sensory approach to acquiring knowledge through observation, manipulation and experimentation of the Natural World. www.hooplaeducation.com

Our Mission Hoopla Education was born out of the need to have a more cohesive and integrated approach to learning, that allows children to combine their understanding of their world through experimentation and manipulation of their senses and the Natural World. Through our unique approach we have perfected the art of science and the science of art, providing the first comprehensive applied S.T.E.A.M. framework, from preschool age!


Pedagogy Hoopla Education applies a S.T.E.A.M. framework with a Project Based Learning (PBL) approach to learning. PBL is a dynamic classroom approach in which children gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an engaging question.

Inspired by leading child-focused pedagogies, kids are placed at the center of the learning process. Our standard-based teacher resources fully support its implementation whilst meeting your curriculum goals.

The Garden Project Resources Implementing The Garden Project is easy thanks to our Complete Classroom Pack, available in 3 levels: Sense of Wonder (2-4yr olds) What are nature’s elements? What are a plant’s basic needs? How do vegetables grow? These are some of the questions that children answer as they are taken on an exploration of nature’s wonders. Children are introduced to how to lead simple inquiries whilst using Land Art to guide their aesthetic outputs. Sense of Observation (3-5yr old) Nature teaches important lessons of care, empathy and patience. In this journal, children are guided into observing nature’s clues to better understand the world around them, as well as perceive the variety of plants and their needs. Children will learn that nature can’t be rushed. Sense of Investigation (4-6yr old) As budding scientists, this journal is all about developing measuring, observational and documentation skills as well as inquiry to find tangible ways to document the changes observed in their plants. The last of a series of three journals, children are now graduating as scientists of the natural world!

Contemporary Art Curriculum 3-99yrs Naturally Creative is a Contemporary Art curriculum that develops children’s sense of aesthetics by applying innovative art techniques inspired by the masters of Contemporary Art. The curriculum is subdivided into three modules or studies that are loosely tied to major art movements. Children learn how to identify the basic elements of art from form, color, shape, pattern and texture as they complete their own Art Portfolio.

Naturally Creative is the first multi-age art curriculum, starting from age 3yrs+, that focuses on skills, unique techniques and art history education. Every study lasts up to 4 months and concludes with an art show of the children’s work. Teachers are given the tools to acknowledge children’s creative output with confidence, balancing exploration and knowing when to stop the creative process once the work has reached its optimum aesthetic value, turning you from a teacher to an art curator, and your classroom into an art gallery!


Every study is accompanied by a Teacher’s Guide, inclusive of 20 detailed lesson plans, that empower the teacher to talk knowledgably about Contemporary Art and engage the children with unique contemporary art techniques. Every child interprets the art movement(s) and builds his/her own body of work with a beautifully designed Children’s Art Portfolio that guides each child through a series of engaging activities! The Classroom Pack includes: • One (1) Teacher’s Guide – 29.7cm x 29.7cm / 11”69 x 11”69 • Ten (10) Children’s Art Portfolios – 29.7cm x 29.7cm / 11”69 x 11”69 • 1hr Online Implementation Training with a Contemporary Artist
