The smell of flowers, the feel of an earthworm: are you ready to connect young children to nature through their senses? In this workshop, you’ll learn from the lessons of many years at forest school. Learn how to create a space that inspires children and discover simple ways to connect children to the places around them and inspire them to use all of their senses to explore the natural world.
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
