You will leave this workshop with inspiration and understanding on how:

  • Children benefit from using nature as an integral part of daily learning.
  • Well-designed outdoor spaces provide an ideal setting for many learning experiences.
  • Learning experiences that take place in the natural world can support all children’s interests and needs and strengthen skill-development in all academic areas.
