Nature-Based Early Childhood Professional Learning
Using nature as a method to achieve educational results is a powerful methodology that builds upon the tradition of using the outdoors to inspire young learners. Positioning nature at the heart of curriculum stimulates creativity, arouses curiosity, and gives children a deep respect for the outdoors. Nature preschools and forest kindergartens are trending in the United States, and their progressive approach to education has fueled a rise in interest.
To help you become part of this powerful, environmentally focused movement we offer professional development that provides skills, meaningful training, and experiential learning opportunities!
NENNECE has formed in response to a growing interest in nature-based education. The purpose is to provide a network for early childhood educators throughout New England to connect with one another and our communities, share ideas and resources, inspire one another, and support each other in providing high-quality nature-based learning opportunities throughout the region.
