I was so happy to have a mix of both girls and boys again on Monday! K. managed to get all the way to me in the hallway before-hand and threw her arms around me, telling me she missed me. She made me smile. We also had a new explorer who fearlessly joined us in the swamp. K. and K. leaped easily from moss island to fern island, looking back at M. and instructing her in the finer points of avoiding the black, muck pools! We showed her the Fairy Tree and we all walked to the old boardwalk.
I am an and outdoor educator with a master's in early childhood development. I taught elementary school for 20 years and now own Woods and Wetlands LLC, offering programs for local children to engage in nature study through play and exploration-based learning. My programs are all outdoors in whatever "wild" spaces are available. I live in Rockford, Michigan with my husband, dog, and three cats. My unique, therapeutic, one and a half hour programs help children to connect with the natural world and with themselves.
