There are many traditionally accepted codes that permeate preschool spaces, such as the notion that walls f1lled with children’s work indicate productivity, an abundance of commercially-purchased toys indicates a well-equipped space, and full shelves result in learning. Early childhood experts are beginning to look at new ways to break these antiquated codes by designing beautiful classroom environments f1lled with nature and natural objects. Learn how to break the traditional aesthetic code by bringing the outside in and creating nature-based experiences for young children.
- Participants will be able to describe the aesthetic code and how it impacts our thinking about classroom design for young children.
- Attendees will be able to identify 4 ways to break the aesthetic code by infusing beauty, nature, loose parts, and recycled materials into the early childhood classroom.
- Learners will be able to document at least 3 benef1ts of nature-based classrooms.
- Participants will attain at least 4 ideas for creating nature-based experiences which focus on children’s exploring, creating, thinking, and sprouting.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
