A light dinner is included in the price and will be served at 5:45pm as we enter the workshop.
Outdoor Classroom Landscape Analysis & Design Teachers, Family Providers, and Administrators will examine the current outdoor spaces at their center or home, analyze the positives for nature play, troubleshoot negative aspects to the current set up, and think creatively about additions. Practical and low cost solutions will be suggested and resources shared.
Optimizing Learning in Your Outdoor Playspace Discover amazing ways to take learning outside and to begin thinking of your playground as an Outdoor Classroom! An emphasis on play and loose parts will be enjoyed by participants while we discuss how working outdoors offers creative and beneficial ways to access mental health, cognitive, and social-emotional support. Practical ideas are shared in order to take action right away, while also planning long term on how to utilize the outdoor spaces more.
