The Back to Nature Network, in partnership with Humber College, is excited to offer Ready…Set…Wonder! a tool for early years educators to use in providing opportunities for children to connect with nature on a regular basis.
In this practical guide, you will find a large number of easy-to-use prompts, which can be applied with simple preparation and minimal materials.
Developing a personal connection with nature in early childhood is strongly associated with children reaching their full potentials in happiness, health and intellectual development. Regular use of this guide will enable early learning and care educators to include exploration of nature as part of outdoor play, and provide each child with the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a life-long connection with the natural world.
