Resilience is the ability to recover from or adjust to misfortune or change, bounce back, and overcome the odds. This is important for every child and adult, as we are all subject to the unknown.

This session will include a discussion on how we can help children develop resilience, why resilience matters, everyday strategies that can be used to create strong supportive interactions and build key social and emotions skills in children.

Outdoor Classrooms - Class Description: Participants will gain an understanding about the outdoor classroom. Knowledge of the defined areas and what children learn. A basic overview of how to connect children to nature and enjoy nature through all the seasons, the outdoor natural learning environment, how to fully utilize it and the wonderful learning experiences it creates for children.  There are many right ways Big or Small- It’s All Good!
