About this Nature-Based Training
You can expect a hands-on day of outdoor fun in nature! Presenters share insights and activities based on their work in nature preschools, forest kindergartens, or other nature-based programs.
Training is ideal for educators working with children ages 3-6 years old. Light breakfast and lunch are included on Saturday, but bring your canteen for drinks.
In addition to a wonderful slate of workshops, our hosts at the Elachee Nature Science Center and the Elachee Nature Academy will open up their preschool to preview their indoor learning environments, and we will have plenty of time to explore the Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve, too!
This training is pending GA training approval for 6 clock hours. ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event. Please dress for the weather, as at least 50% of this event will take place outdoors, and don't forget your canteen!
Complete schedule will be announced soon, but some session higlights include "A Day In the Life at Nature Preschool" by the Elachee Nature Academy, nature/art experiences by Caatinga!, insight from Gilbert Elementary School's public forest kindergarten, Waldorf-inspired projects from the Dreamers' School, and outdoor sessions round a campfire with Medicine Bow. Stay tuned for more presenters and final program schedule!
