Empowering Children Outdoors

June 15, 2017

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be in a classroom without walls? What would happen if you decided to go against the grain and make your classroom the outdoors? Join us as we dive deeper into child centred, place-spaced learning. “Risky” play, environmental stewardship, empowering language, problem-solving and critical thinking are just a few concepts we will discuss.

Be ready to go outside rain or shine and be prepared for hands-on exploration (raincoats, hoods and boots are a good idea).

Katelynn is an early childhood, infant, toddler, and special needs educator. She works in a variety of early learning fields including the Langley School District but feels most inspired outdoors exploring and investigating together with young children.

Laureen is an Early Childhood Educator and Forest School Practitioner with a wealth of experience and knowledge in Early Childhood Development. She integrates her passion with the outdoors to empower the minds and hearts of young children. This dynamic energetic duo co-founded the Langley Forest School in 2014 and will make you want to run outside with your students, even on the hardest of rain falls!
