Our Outreach, and Why We’d Love to Speak With You
By Cory Kibler, Contributing Writer for the Nature Explore program
We at the Nature Explore program are a lucky group. Along with supporting a mission we believe to be more important than ever—connecting children with nature—we also get to spend a lot of time working and speaking with others who are also deeply invested in our children. Educators, administrators, teachers, parents, legislators, nonprofits, you name it: There are all kinds of people supporting this mission. And our interconnectedness is vital.
In an ideal world, the topic of early education would be an ongoing global conversation. While it’s not quite there yet, it’s on its way, all because of early-education advocates like you.
This is particularly apparent during upcoming events like the National Association for the Education of Young Children Annual Conference (NAEYC). Within this community, we have the distinct honor of sharing our vision that, by connecting children with nature every day in outdoor classrooms, we can impart a richer natural experience for every generation.
As if that weren’t amazing enough, we are also able to connect with others who share the same passion for education, but who have refreshingly unique and different approaches than ours. And, in traveling toward the same goals from all different angles and with different trajectories, we improve and evolve early education more than we can know.
Let’s start a conversation, if we haven’t already. If you will be attending the NAEYC conference, check out our presentation schedule, or stop by our booth and share your story with us.
