Workshop by Rachel Larimore: Going to the Great “Beyond”

$150 – $200

Workshop by Rachel Larimore- Going to the Great “Beyond”
September 28, 9 am – 3pm | Lunch included | $150 – 200 sliding scale

This workshop is preceded by an optional, by-donation Friday evening Presentation.

Nature-based early childhood education includes excursions to wild spaces beyond the fenced play area. Connecting back to the Friday evening keynote we’ll first discuss why we visit these spaces? In other words, what is the purpose of experiences in the “beyond.” Are we providing children with activities that align with these goals? This session will explore our current practices and how we can move away from learning in or about nature and toward more learning with nature. To do this we’ll consider the structure of our time, the physical environment, and our teacher-child interactions. We’ll also discuss how we integrate those experiences in the beyond into the indoor classroom. The workshop will include a mix of presentation by Rachel Larimore and active participation by attendees—through, for example, small group discussions. CEUs available! About Rachel Larimore
