Event Description

Join the Wonder Guides from the Wisconsin Nature Action Collaborative for Children and learn nature-based learning activities for your work with young children.

The day will be an exercise in learning outdoors so that we can successfully bring the wonder and joy of the natural world to the children and families we serve. Please dress and prepare for the weather.

During this 6-hour workshop, there will be sessions that highlight the interconnectedness of nature and foster the development of perspective taking and empathy; explore ways that natural materials can inspire students’ creativity; learn how to use the unique resources of your site to inspire joy, wonder, and learning for the children in your care.

The seminar is worth 0.6 CEUs or six hours of continuing education training in Early Childhood Education.

Registration is $69, includes all materials, continental breakfast, lunch and beverages. To register, or to learn more about the Wonder Guides and the day's events, please go to: https://campus.uwplatt.edu/continuing/nature-based-early-learning-forum
