Experience Nature Kindergarten – RRU Continuing Studies Course

We had a good turn out for our first Nature Kindergarten Experience with Continuing Studies at Royal Roads University. There were thirteen enthusiastic and engaged participants who were eager to hear about the Nature Kindergarten.  We shared some of the history of the project and stories of the children’s participation from the beginning of September. It was valuable for us to hear what participants were the most interested in and what information was most valuable to them. Some of the comments were– “Thank you! Very inspiring!” “Thank you for this delightful morning.”

 A morning is a short time to share all we have learned over the past two years!  We will share further insights in April and try to build on suggestions from the participants from the December workshop.

  1. Hi Frances,
    I am currently developing a distance ed. course for the Early Learning and Child Care Dept. at Grande Prairie Regional College. The course focuses on environments for young children and how they contribute to development. Would you mind if I used your blog “Creating a Home for Winter” in this course? I am absolutely enthralled with this whole idea of outdoor preschools and kindergartens and I’d like our students to see exactly how your program supports development and also provides an essential “ingredient” (connection to nature) that is missing from so many children’s lives today.
    Thank you so much.
