Experiential outdoor learning on and off your school grounds
Experience a professional learning workshop designed for K-12 Teachers and Early Childhood Educators who are interested in learning how (and why!) they can incorporate innovative nature-focused learning approaches 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.
What are the key elements of our approach?
