We are thrilled to offer our Nature-Based Teacher Certification as an online option! You will gain a deeper understanding of nature pedagogy and practices as you earn this introductory credential. 

Our 36-hour course provides in-depth study of best practices in nature-based early childhood education to prepare you for meaningful outdoor learning experiences. We draw from experienced educators with diverse perspectives to help you hone your own approaches to nature-based ECE. Whether you are in a formal school or childcare setting or working in a nature or forest preschool, this course is designed to meet the needs of early childhood educators working in any setting. 

SCHEDULE
Tuesdays:  Facilitated discussions on key topics
Wednesdays: Cohort meetings
Thursdays:  Guest presenters with Q&A

Course meets from 7-8:30 p.m. (EST) on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday. There is a total of 24 hours direct learning through 6 consecutive weeks of online sessions with presenters and within small cohorts. An additional 12 hours of flexible, self-directed learning will take place centered on outdoor skills and experiences, which you must provide documentation of.  Upon registration, we will provide you with a complete list of materials needed for the course.

We are delighted to share this course with our international friends and those who cannot travel for training at this time. Feel free to reach out to Emily with questions.
