Samara Early Learning owner, Rachel Larimore, will once again be joining the staff of Chippewa Nature Center's Nature Preschool in facilitating this four-day workshop. The Institute allows preschool educators to see the teachers and students in action (three of the four mornings) while also learning about the philosophy and nature-based teaching practices. You'll walk away with the information and skills to incorporate nature-based concepts into daily preschool routines while maintaining the integrity of their best practice curriculum. Topics will include: 

  • Benefits of Nature Play

  • Real versus perceived outdoor risks

  • Naturalizing outdoor play areas

  • Integrating nature into indoor spaces

  • Seasonal activities to incorporate into the classroom
