Naturalizing your Indoor Early Learning & Child Care Environment
January 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
As educators, we have become familiar with the term ‘environment as the third educator’ and we are moving away from traditional, brightly coloured environments that have an abundance of synthetic materials towards natural indoor environments. This workshop will consider how educators can enhance their existing early learning and child care environments by bringing ‘the outdoors indoors’ to create aesthetically attractive natural environments that spark the curiosity and sens of wonder for children and adults.
The session will consider how educators can actively engage children and families in the naturalization of their indoor environments. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in thought-provoking discussions with fellow educators and engage with a variety of natural materials that they can add to their indoor environments.
