Join ERAFANS at New Canaan Nature Center for this 6-clock hour Outdoor Teacher Retreat (CT clock hour approval)! Get ready to play outdoors as we start the day touring and learning about the Nature Center Preschool. All workshops will be full of practical ideas and activities you can use right away! Presenters share insights and activities based on their work in nature preschools, forest kindergartens, or other nature-based programs.
ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event. Please dress for the weather, as 100% of this training takes place outdoors, rain or shine. Lunch is included, but remember your canteen for drinks throughout the day.
Note: Please bring your canteen for drinks; lunch is provided. 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.
