The article gives an hermeneutical interpretation of the new Polish National Curriculum, considering the field of environmental issues for classes I–III in primary education. Placing the curriculum in the context of Dorota Klus-Stańska’s concept of educational discourses: functionalistic – behavioral, humanistic – adaptive, constructivist – developmental, critical – emancipatory, the author points to its inconsistencies. Viewing the curriculum in this light, there is also the realization that some postulates of the Curriculum might result in the stereotyping and infantilization of environmental knowledge among students.
