The Learning Conference includes:

·        Tours of preschool and nature center grounds

·        Observation time in preschool classrooms

·        Exploration of materials and resources

·        Two breakout sessions:

o Season’s Hike - Discover the wonders of the season. With the guidance of a Dodge Nature Center naturalist, find out what changes plants and animals are experiencing in our local environment. You’re sure to get inspiration and information you can take away with you.

o Nature’s Curriculum - Dodge Nature Preschool teachers will share their experiences using nature to guide their curriculum and serve as a catalyst for rich learning experiences. Practical ideas will be shared for participants to apply the session’s content to their own context.

The cost is $85 per participant. This fee includes a light breakfast, lunch and materials. Please come prepared to spend time outdoors.
