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.
