A Wyoming Version of Antioch University New England’s In Bloom programs

Saturday, April 28, 2018 - 8:45 am - 4:00 pm @ Teton Science Schools’ Jackson Campus

Spring in the Rocky Mountains is mud season! Get prepared for the changing weather and mud by learning more about why getting young children outside is so important as well as get practice with what to do with your students outside. David Sobel, nature-based early childhood expert from Antioch University New England will present and set the stage for the day sharing his research about the benefits of time outdoors for young learners as well as inspirational stories of programs from across the United States. Dr. Deb Carter from Boise State University will present on her research and experience blending nature-based early childhood education and behavior support. The faculty from the Pre-Kindergarten programs at the Teton Valley Community School and Journeys School will model experiences from their nature-based and Reggio Emilia-inspired programs. Participants will spend part of the day at nearby Rendezvous Park taking part in nature-based experiences and discussing facilitation and documentation of those experiences with children.
