Enchantments of Winter - Educator Workshop

Sparkles in the snow, the mystery of a snowflake, the wonder of footprints left behind – so much to enchant our minds and imaginations - all wrapped up in the frosty folds of winter.

Enchantments of Winter is a hands-on workshop on outdoor winter play for Early Childhood and Elementary School Educators that will explore:

  • the affordances and offerings of winter;
  • materials to support and enhance winter play;
  • probable curriculum connections and possibilities for project work;
  • seasonal risk-benefit assessment;
  • supporting children and parents to dress for the weather.

In the spirit of the forest school ethos this workshop will be held mostly outdoors, will include hands-on natural materials exploration, storytelling and an opportunity to view current and past documentation of project based work from children aged 3-6 years focusing on their connections and ongoing investigations in a nature space in the winter season.

Come be enchanted by winter.
