Western Massachusetts principals and regional educators will discuss their experiences with implementing innovative outdoors practices in their preschool, kindergarten and early elementary grades in their schools. They’ll describe some of their programs, and discuss how they’ve supported and encouraged teachers to move some of the curriculum into the natural world. We’ll also discuss benefits to children and the response of parents and community members to these innovations.
