Limited space, Registration Coming Fall 2018!
Join us for the first UK Forest School Study Tour offered by ERAFANS! We will visit several nature-based early learning programs in Scotland and England during our adventurous 10-day trip. This study tour takes place during the school year so that we can observe children and UK practitioners engaged in outdoor learning. We will also participate in professional development workshops offered by select nature-based programs. Don't worry, we've built in some time for you to explore on your own, too!
