Description

CONNECT AND REFLECT

 

“Creating Engaging, Natural Outdoor Learning Environments

 

Walden Daycare invites you to come and visit their inspiring learning environments and sample the fruits of their labours.  See first-hand how they integrate their nature-based philosophy into their early learning programs. After the tour, participants will experience the outdoor environments through play.

 

We will then reflect on these questions:

 

  • What are our intentions when planning for outdoor play spaces?
  • What is the purpose of gardening and how can we integrate it into our daily activities? 
  • Do our rules around risky play align to our views of children? 

 

If you are an Educator and have been wondering about nature-based play, gardening, or risky play OR if you are a Supervisor or ED and are wondering about how you can support nature-based learning environments then please join us for a fun evening. There will be make and take activities for everyone so dress for outdoor play!  Rain or shine, come and see how easy and fun it is to bring your indoors out!
