Game Changer: The Transformational Power of Natural Outdoor Classrooms
This introduction to the Outdoor Classroom approach to early childhood education will focus on how it transforms the experience of children, teachers and programs overall. The results are joyful learning, harmonious interactions and a relaxed and inspired teaching environment.
Children’s Lab School
The tour at the lab school will include a display called “Playing With Science” focused on experiential activities.
The purpose of a lab school is to provide an enriched and supportive learning environment for children, parents and DVC students. The school is viewed as a community of learners in which children are seen as curious, competent and capable of constructing knowledge. The curriculum and environmental settings are designed to reflect the developmental needs and interests of each child and the unique cultures of the individuals within the school. The learning activities and materials that are offered are concrete, real and meaningful to the lives of children.
