The Value of Forest Education in the Early Years – In-Person Workshop
Children today are spending more and more time on screens, both in academic and leisure activities leaving them disconnected from themselves and nature. We seek to support the growth of the whole child but how can this be achieved when academic fluency is the only focus? Are we helping to educate the next generation to be creative, imaginative, inquisitive and inclusive? Forest Education is not a new concept but one that has not received enough understanding and discussion in North America. This workshop will explore and explain in-depth the core values of connecting with nature and how this connection will lead to a child who is more self-aware and self-confident. By establishing these core needs, academic milestones will be achieved more easily and with an inner-desire to learn. Join us as we work together to let the forest be our guide and teach us how outdoor education is the way of the future.
