About the event
A light dinner is included in the price and will be served at 5:45pm as we enter the workshop.
Evaluating Risk & Hazards in the Outdoors What is safe? In this practical session, we'll explore some definitions in the context of early childhood care and education in regards to licensing and best practice. Participants will find that this training merges nicely with Conscious Discipline and will prepare them to bring back conversations to their center or agency.
Teacher & Child Skills for Risks found Outdoors When we work outdoors with natural materials either in the outdoor classroom or in natural areas, there will be opportunity for developmentally appropriate risks. This training will help participants see the link between both social emotional skills and executive function in these natural environments. We will learn how to anticipate and plan for engaging with natural materials and phenomenon.
