Outdoor Learning Environment


Event Description

Spending time outside is vital for young children, and not just because they get to burn off some energy. From a very early age, children are curious about nature. By providing children with rich, purposeful outdoor learning environments, early childhood educators can help the children in their care learn, have fun, and begin to develop a sense of connection to the world beyond the playground. In this class, participants will learn the importance of the outdoor environment across multiple developmental domains in addition to the health benefits and safety concerns.
