Host the Cedarsong Way® Teacher Training at your Site
This training is tailored to your site, your staff and your program. A Cedarsong Way® certified Trainer will travel to you and teach you and your staff about the underlying educational philosophies and nature pedagogy of the Cedarsong Way, distinguished by its commitment to total nature immersion, interest-led flow learning, emergent curriculum, inquiry-based teaching style, and documentation of the learning. You will learn how to make your Nature program a success by understanding the most critical elements such as appropriate clothing, building parent community, the importance of the right teachers and risk management, i.e. acceptable risks and hazardous assessment. The trainer will also evaluate your site and make suggestions for maximizing its potential.
Each training includes The Cedarsong Way Teacher Training Packet which consists of the book “Forest Kindergartens: The Cedarsong Way” by Erin Kenny, “Teaching The Cedarsong Way Training Guide,” and “Nature Notes Journal: Documenting Your Emergent Curriculum” both by Erin Kenny and Robin Rogers, and The Cedarsong Way hour-long documentary DVD.
