Modern research continues to prove how important time spent in nature is for the development of a young child. Yet, it can be difficult for many families living in a city to spend long stretches of time in nature. At Spark Montessori, we have integrated a robust Outdoor program into our daily routine and we would like to share what we’ve learned with parents so they can do the same at home.

Come learn more about:
The research on the effects of time in nature has on children
How Spark Montessori has designed its Outdoor Program
How to engage children while outdoors
Practical tips for preparing young children for the outdoors
Observations of the benefits of the time spent outdoors
Simple activities you can do with your child in nature

Please RSVP in Facebook so we know how many people to expect.

Childcare can be provided by reserving a spot via Messenger at least 2 days before the day of the event.
