Join ERAFANS at Green Earth Montessori for this 6-clock hour Outdoor Teacher Retreat! We kick off the training with an evening campfire keynote by ERAFANS Director Monica Wiedel-Lubinski followed by a full Saturday of hands-on outdoor sessions, including tours of two Green Earth Montessori locations.
This retreat brings together experts in the field of nature-based early learning to share ideas and practices, with a variety of workshops to choose from. Gather to explore Earth skills, nature-based pedagogy, and more!
ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event. Please dress for the weather, as 100% of this training takes place outdoors, rain or shine. Refreshments provided Friday evening; coffee/tea with lite breakfast and lunch included on Saturday, but remember your canteen for drinks throughout the day.
Note: We strive for zero waste during our training events; please bring your canteen for drinks.
