Nature Preschool Institute 2018

I will once again be joining the staff of Chippewa Nature Center's Nature Preschool in facilitating this three-day workshop. The Institute allows preschool educators to see the teachers and students in action (two of the three 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

Fee ($350) includes snacks, lunches, handouts & take-home resources. Michigan SCECHs available (pending approval). Each day runs 8:30am to 4:30pm.
