This all-day conference brings together professionals who are redefining what’s possible in early childhood education. Children stomp in puddles, whittle sticks, paint their faces with charcoal, take care of animals AND expand their vocabularies, do real math, conduct investigations and develop resilience in nature-based programs. Presenters include Community Works Journal contributing editor and Antioch NE senior faculty member David Sobel. Come join the dialogue.
