Play-based Outdoor Learning Workshops for Elementary Teachers and Early Childhood Educators at Evergreen Brick Works

Experience a professional learning workshop designed for Elementary Teachers and Early Childhood Educators who are interested in learning how (and why!) they can incorporate nature-based learning into their everyday practice.

Evergreen facilitators will engage participants in a creative sampling of activities and inquiry-based approaches in our imaginative outdoor play and learning environment, and will integrate practical natural learning connections to the current Ontario Curriculum.
