Ponti Jauchius, Jena
Landscape Architect/Nature Play Expert
N is for Nature Play, LLC
Sponsored by Nature Explore
Nature play is one of the most powerful tools we have to give children the type of childhood they need to grow into thriving adults. Nature play calms children’s nervous system, offers the most beneficial sensory stimulation, and is an eager co-creator in play and learning. The benefits of nature play are increasingly recognized, however there is an essential aspect of nature play that has yet to be fully explored: the multi-sensory value of nature play and how it helps children grow into more complex, balanced, and joyful human beings.
This inspiring session will provide in-depth insights about children’s seven senses (there’s not just five!) and how they influence play, learning, and connection. We’ll cover why children need sensory-rich nature play and learning environments, and how we can tailor the sensory experiences of these environments to the individual needs of children, particularly neurodiverse children. By creating sensory-supportive nature-based places for children, ones they experience daily, we are better able to nurture our young in a way they can realize their true, full potential.
Join Jena Ponti Jauchuus, a landscape architect with over two decades of experience designing children’s nature based play, learning, and therapeutic spaces to understand her unique approach to creating sensory-rich, nature-filled play and learning environments for kids of all abilities and (neuro)diversities
This webinar will help you see your outdoor play and learning space with new eyes. It will teach you to look through the lens of the senses, which are the closest adults can get to seeing the magical, experiential way kids see their world.
In this session you will:
- Gain insight into the role sensory-rich nature play has in calming children’s nervous systems, leading to higher quality play, learning, and connecting experiences.
- Understand children’s seven sensory systems and how kids experience their world through each system.
- Gather practical knowledge for evaluating the sensory quality of their individual play and learning space, and how to enhance it for all children, including those with neurodiversities.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
