Peabody Speaker Series: Creating Outdoor Spaces that Connect Children with the Natural World
Nancy Striniste, Founder and Principal Designer at EarlySpace, LLC
Come join us on October 3rd at 7PM in the Batten Building for engaging book talk by Nature Play founder Nancy Striniste. Nature play can awaken children’s senses, challenge their bodies, inspire their imaginations and build self-confidence. In order to grow up healthy and happy, children need abundant, unstructured time to play and explore in the natural world, but today’s children rarely have the opportunity to roam free outdoors. Bringing nature to the places where children spend their time is an answer.
Nancy will also be working with our Grade 4 Environmental Science classes to design a new natural playscape in our woods! We hope that you can join us on October 3rd! Please
