Project Seasons for Young Learners: Cultivating Joy and Wonder Shelburne Farms

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Shelburne Farms
Instructor: Jed Norris

An immersive, energizing week on the farm for early childhood educators! Tap into your own curiosity and joy by connecting with peers, engaging with our farmyard, forest, lake, and wetlands, and learning practical activities and pedagogy you can easily employ in your own place. We’ll use hands-on activities, protocols, and shared learning to examine how the Big Ideas of Sustainability can instill a deep love and appreciation for the natural world in both you and your students. We look forward to this week every year because no program is the same and it brings together a wonderful community of learners from all over who share, inspire, and support each other.
