About this event

Learning in and with Nature - Nature Based Practice in Early Childhood, FDC, OHSC, and Homeschool educators (full day). Introduction Level

This workshop explores Nature Pedagogy – the “why”, the approach to outdoor learning, the theorists, the benefits to children and it showcases what outdoor learning looked like in services – showing examples and also engaging in hands on nature play activities. It focuses on how you can implement nature pedagogy within the fence of an early learning centre.

It is suitable for educators caring for children aged 0-12 with all workshop content mapped to the Early Years Learning Framework and My Time Our Place.

It includes resources to support progression and whole service implementation.
