Guided by the “Why?” — Making Intentional Decisions in the Nature-based Early Childhood Classrooms

  • North Branch Nature Center 713 Elm Street Montpelier, VT United States (map)

Educators make thousands of decisions every day that influence children’s learning. It’s important to consider the overall goals of nature-based programs and whether or not our teaching and administrative practices reflect those goals. Rachel will challenge attendees to consider how well program structures, physical spaces, and teacher-child interactions align with the “Why?” of nature-based early childhood education. No matter how long you’ve been in nature-based education, you’ll leave this keynote reflecting on your practice, energized, and ready to change the world! 

This presentation is followed by a full-day workshop for educators on Saturday morning.

This event is hosted by North Branch Nature Center.
