In this training participants will investigate why nature education is integral in early childhood education. Participants will explore their own history with nature and examine their own comfort levels. Together, we will create a continuum of nature usage in the classroom, identify where individuals currently fall on this continuum and where they want to be. Each participant will then create a plan that includes setting a goal, identifying roadblocks and resources and success.
