In Bloom in Santa Barbara: Promising Practices in Nature-Based Early Childhood Education @ Orfalea Family Children's Center
Nov 5 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Antioch University Santa Barbara is once again excited to be partnering with Antioch University New England, the Academy of Forest Kindergarten Teachers, and the Orfalea Family Children’s Center to offer In Bloom in Santa Barbara: Promising Practices in Nature Based Early Childhood Education.

In Bloom Santa Barbara

“Every child should have mud pies,
grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs,
mud-turtles, elderberries,
wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts,
trees to climb, brooks to wade,
water-lilies, woodchucks, bats, bees,
butterflies, various animals to pet,
hayfields, pine-cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes,
huckleberries, and hornets;
and any child who has been
deprived of these has been deprived of
the best part of his education.”

 ~ Luther Burbank

Children stomp in puddles, whittle sticks, paint their faces with charcoal, take care of animals AND expand their vocabularies, do real math, conduct investigations and develop resilience in nature-based early childhood programs.

We invite you to both join in the dialogue and actively participate in this one-day conference, In Bloom in Santa Barbara: Promising Practices in Nature-based Early Childhood Education on Saturday, November 5, 2016. The conference will feature a morning keynote, an afternoon panel discussion and workshops by local practitioners. All events will focus on the educational and health benefits of being in the natural world with children.

All early childhood and early elementary parents, teachers, outdoor educators, and administrators with an interest in connecting children to the nearby natural and built environments are invited.  Click here to register
