Paul, along with Claire Warden, will be presenting a one day intensive workshop on January 30th. The workshop will be about nature preschools and getting kids into nature. The workshop will start informatively at Dan Foley Cultural Center, and then after lunch, will move to McIntyre Ranch for the final afternoon hands-on session. Please see PDF doc below for more information.
The workshop is directed primarily at preschool teachers and center directors here in the SF Bay Area, but would also be informative and valuable for homeschooling parents, or those wanting to know more about a nature preschool setting.
Price of workshop is $149.00 per person, or group price of $125.00 per person for three or more participants.
