About this Nature-Based Training
Join ERAFANS at Green Earth Montessori Nature School in Helena, Montana for this 8-clock hour Outdoor Teacher Retreat! Get ready to play outdoors as we start the day learning about Green Earth's programs. All workshops are full of practical ideas and activities you can use right away! Presenters share insights and activities based on their work in nature preschools, forest schools, forest kindergartens, or other nature-based school and child care programs.
ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event. Please dress for the weather, as the majority of this training takes place outdoors, rain or shine.
Note: Please bring your canteen for drinks. Appetizers and dessert will be provided on Friday evening. Lite breakfast and lunch is provided on Saturday. While this workshop is open to educators working with children of all ages, the content will be geared towards those working with children ages 3-8 years old.
Who Should Attend?
This training is ideal for educators, caregivers, and others working with young children. Our participants work in all kinds of settings, from nature-based schools and forest kindergartens to public schools, traditional preschools, HeadStart programs, childcare centers, daycare, and more.
