Here’s a shoutout to educators who would like to incorporate and implement Forest Learning in their programs. Grab the opportunity to learn the best techniques. Nature Play QLD is conducting a full-day workshop at the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens, where participants can discover tried and tested principles and practices to benefit the kids.
The workshop, led by Education Coordinator Anya Imhoff of Nature Play QLD, will run on Thursday, the 19th of March 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Regardless of the educational centre setting, this workshop could bring significant results for educators of various approaches — home school, early childhood, out of school hours care, family daycare and primary school. The techniques are designed for educators who work with kids from the ages of two to 10.
Along with understanding the ethos of Forest Learning, participants of the workshop will also take part in helpful activities to identify and overcome restrictions of Forest Learning.
Does your program have routines in place, including assessments of risks and benefits? The workshop will include planning and strategising to come up with a suitable outdoor play setting specific to the needs of the kids attending your centre.
Participation in this workshop includes a free start-up pack of resources to use in your program. These include a Forest Learning Handbook, a USB of various documentation on policies, procedures, session planning, risk management and more.
To register for a slot, register and secure your ticket online. Participants are expected to wear appropriate and protective outdoor clothing. Refreshments will be served but bring a packed lunch.
