  • Nature Based Activities for Infants and Toddlers (Online)
    20 April 2023
    6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Workshop Description:

This online workshop (through Zoom) will focus on a brief definition of nature-based programming, from outlining the benefits of caring for infants and/or toddlers outdoors, building confidence to get outside on a daily basis, and introducing examples of activities that can be incorporated into your program right away. Come prepared to share your experiences, hear others’ experiences, and engage in discussion about how to engage with nature in safe, comfortable and meaningful ways with infants and/or toddlers.¬† Once you discover that you only need the simplest of resources…you, the children you care for and nature, you may never go indoors again!
