Educators across Ontario have been embracing the move from traditional playgrounds to naturalized outdoor play spaces that amaze and inspire children, educators, families and communities. If you are looking to bring further intentionality to your space by creating a unique outdoor learning program that truly connects children to nature, this three part series, based on Eric Nelson’s book Cultivating Outdoor Classrooms is for you.
Join us for these engaging sessions where you will have opportunities to participate in conversations and share ideas with fellow educators, and engage in a variety of hands on experiences. Whether you have a newly renovated outdoor space or you are working in a traditional outdoor space, a variety of strategies and tips will be offered in this workshop to support you on your journey.
The first session in this series will look at what Outdoor Classrooms are, their benefits, and the role of the outdoor classroom in early childhood education. Participants will explore philosophies and approaches to support Outdoor Learning Programs.
