As educators, we need to slow down: watch children fill themselves with all the possibilities of learning with nature and to allow children the time for a childhood full of excitement and joy inside, outside, and beyond.

We are excited to announce that Journeys into Nature is coming to the USA for the first time. Join Claire Warden for a 4 day journey into nature to examine the way that we consult children. How do we truly integrate nature into all aspects of learning, whether we are indoors, outdoors or beyond? How do we ensure that children are having authentic and natural learning experiences? Why is learning in a natural context important?

Claire Warden's course will give you the theoretical understanding of nature pedagogy as well as the practical skills to begin to intertwine nature with all forms of learning. 

Dates: 23rd to the 26th July 2018

Venue: Ferntop Nature Preschool, 7731 Fernvale Road, Fairview, TN 37062
