Forest Kindergartens and Nature Preschools are a growing movement nationally and right here in our state! Join us for an introductory-level conference and build your understanding of the research, pedagogy and approach within these programs. Learn about how they relate to play-based learning and get the chance to network with local educators in the field. Other opportunities include engaging in modeled activities and seeing other examples of outdoor classroom spaces. This series will focus on working with younger students, although the principles and ideas are applicable to older grades as well.

Indiana teachers may also receive Professional Growth Points by participating.

This FREE virtual workshop will take place over the course of two weeks via Zoom.

Sessions will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays on July 14, 16, 21, and 23 from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Registration is required on our website: goshen.edu/merrylea/takingschooloutside
