Learning & Facilitating in the Forest with Loose Parts

Nature is a wonderful teacher, and free play in natural places is important for children’s early learning and sense of place. Learn about the growing movement towards forest schools and how you can incorporate elements of this style of outdoor learning into your child care. What challenges emerge when you are working with children outdoors? What inspirations can you bring to your outdoor classroom? Engage with a variety of loose parts in this hands-on workshop and reflect on how to support children in their outdoor play.

Suitable for child care providers, child care workforce, and parents.
