Exploring Nature Education
This outdoor, hands-on workshop facilitated by Ginette Wilson, Early Learning and Child Care Program Consultant, took a look at how educators can incorporate creative opportunities into their early learning and child care environments that utilize the readily available natural gifts that Mother Nature affords us. This workshop supported educators with connecting to the outdoor environment and minimizing the impact that the materials they use have on it. We discovered how the natural, outdoor environment acts as the third Educator and looked at a range of activities that engage children and encourage them to respect and explore the natural world.
