The outdoor drop off sounds really fun but I keep thinking about our weather here (often -15 Celsius or colder from December to March) and it is making me nervous as I don’t like the cold but it’s like they said, there’s no bad weather, just bad clothing ! This video also inspired me to keep moving away from plastic and to bring even more natural object in my classroom (rocks, sticks, shells…) Finally, I was trying to think of a way to keep our outdoor classroom open in the winter with all the snow we usually get and I thought why not bring the kids outside and make them shovel and clean our space as part of their physical education class haha ! This course is really helping me to think outside the box 🙂 Victoria Hackett May 25, 2018 Log in to Reply Thrilled that you have been inspired to think outside of the box. Thinking both how to tweak your indoor space and how to use your outdoor space in the cold of Canada winters! wecrazy6 May 6, 2018 Log in to Reply Outdoor play spaces initiates play with purpose .Michelle Morse ,East Bridgewater Victoria Hackett May 6, 2018 Log in to Reply YES! sharoncoop April 16, 2018 Log in to Reply Our educators have started visiting other preschools who offer more natural elements in design and materials. They have found them more calming and more inspirational. It was interesting to see the evolution in their thinking through the experience of seeing it for themselves. Every idea is a good idea, some to be tucked away for future use and some to be put into practice immediately. I love how much these educators talk about the children, not their own ideas or plans, but what the children do and how they react and act in this natural environment.
