Forest schools: Outdoor education, risky play and nature
Our guest today, Marlene Power founded the Carp Ridge Forest Preschool ; Canada's first outdoor, nature-based Forest Preschool. She was also part of the creation of Forest School Canada, a national initiative to promote nature-based education through Forest School and Nature School professional learning, policy and research. Marnie was so graceful in sharing her journey to being at the heart of the forest school movement in Canada and she shared the language that is beneficial for kids around risky play that fosters their confidence.
Lots to learn, grab a coffee and lets dive in.
