New Haven, CT
About this Retreat - registration coming soon! Discover ways that nature-based learning enhances skill development during a hands-on day of training! Presenters share insights and activities based on their work in nature preschools, forest kindergartens, or other nature-based programs. Light breakfast and lunch are included, but please bring your canteen for drinks. You can indicate dietary restrictions when you register.
This training features two tracks for educators working with children ages 3-5 years old and 5-7 years old. Throughout the day, you can choose which sessions are the most useful to you. Dress for the weather, as at least 50% of this event will take place outdoors, and don't forget your canteen!
Our hosts at the Common Ground Environmental Education Center and the NatureYear program offer nature-based education including an immersive outdoor learning program for children who home study starting at age 5. Located on the grounds of a charter high school and urban farm, this site provides an exemplary model of nature-based education.
Check back soon...a great training schedule is underway. Complete details coming soon!
