MAY 3 @ 1230PM EASTERN
Forest School Experiences You Can Do At Home
with Becca Hackett-Levy, Executive Director of Northeast LA Forest School
Time Left to Book
Being outdoors invigorates a child’s independence and curiosity. But what if you can’t be out every day?
About the Workshop
Becca Hackett-Levy developed Northeast LA Forest School as a natural classroom in the urban park landscape of Los Angeles, reversing the “indoorification of childhood” with fully outdoor preschool education. There, dirt is canvas, rocks are sorting beads, and birds overhead are the class pets.
In a time when many of us are in (or out) more than we want to be, and when parents are teachers more than ever, Becca shares her favorite lessons from the forest, so you can nurture their play and love for science wherever you are.
Bring a cup of coffee or glass of wine and be ready to turn your camera and mic on, if you like, to discuss with other working parents. Kids and distractions welcome.
