Connecting children to nature is a vital part of our role as Jewish early childhood educators.  Please join us as we explore research into the relationship between children and nature and examine how we can create inspiring natural environments in our schools.  We will also offer a tour of the recently installed outdoor playscape at Temple Beth Ami Nursery School.
