in nature preschools, forest kindergartens, or other nature-based programs.
Training is ideal for educators working with children ages 3-8 years old. Attendees join from all kinds of early learning settings - from nature-based programs and schools to traditional public schools, childcare centers, daycare, HeadStart, and home school settings. 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 Brukner Nature Center will offer informal tours of their learning environments and outdoor grounds. We would like to extend a special thank you to our partners for making this Outdoor Teacher Retreat possible!
This training is pending OH training approval. 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!
Highlights include sessions from the Red Oak Community School, the Learning Tree Farm, and Little Schoolhouse in the Woods. Complete schedule coming soon - stay tuned!
