this training is self paced
Policymakers, practitioners, researchers, and families are invited to Advancing Early Childhood Education Outdoors Now to bring into focus visions of licensed early childhood education outdoors tailored to British Columbia, and identify next steps towards their manifestations
Three panel discussions bring together local and international experiences, research, and stories from experts and leaders in the fields of outdoor and land-based education, health, law, and psychology.
A growing number of outdoor programs for pre-school aged children have been established in BC following models from Germany, Scandinavia, Switzerland, and the UK. During COVID-19 pandemic, public health recommendations encourage British Columbians to go outside to reduce transmission risks. COVID-19 combined with the mounting research on the importance of outdoor play for children’s learning development and health has meant that outdoor early childhood education programs are gaining momentum.
participants will view the panel discussion on their own time. Once viewed, participants will answer three reflection questions based on the videos and submit their responses to CCRR. Upon completion, participants will receive a professional development certificate for 4.5 hours
