Abstract: This Report offers a current and comprehensive response to the NSW Environmental Trust (ET, The Trust) project brief, entitled 'Investigating early childhood education and care services environmental education programs'. The project implementation was guided by three project frames stated by the Trust namely: children's knowledge and learning about sustainability; exemplary sustainable early childhood service role models; and, early childhood services as community hubs for sustainability. In addition, the Trust identified eight focal questions and negotiated with the consultancy team about which peak bodies within the NSW early childhood education field would participate in the project.
