Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom Communities Survey

Thank you for being a valued member of our Certified Nature Explore Classroom Network and for your continued partnership with the Nature Explore program. To help us learn more about the children impacted by the nature-rich learning opportunities you’re offering, we ask you to share some brief demographic data about your program and the children/families you serve.

The Nature Explore program is a division of the Dimensions Educational Research Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. The information contained in the following survey may help our program qualify for grants to support ongoing Nature Explore operations and sustainability, which would enable us to serve more programs and ultimately impact more children. All data shared outside our organization will be aggregated and anonymous, so that no individuals or programs will be identifiable.

This information will also support Dimensions’ ongoing research initiative. Our organization has been collecting research on children’s learning since 1996, and program information from our network of Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom partners is an important source for highlighting the impacts of connecting children with the benefits of learning outside in nature. Your efforts will help to further our mission and connect more children and families with heart-centered, high-quality, nature-rich learning every day.

Please complete this to the best of your ability. We greatly appreciate your participation.
