Empowering Parents, Engaging Learners: Outdoor Edition


Debbie Pushor is back! This time, she’ll be talking about slowing down, getting outside and enjoying winter activities that also contribute to learning goals.

Additional Information

Join us on Zoom here: 

This presentation will focus on engaging your kids in outdoor learning over the winter, and how to make the most of your time. While it can be easy to focus on things we can’t do right now, she’ll be talking about things we can do: more family time, more conversations, more opportunities to connect with your child. She’ll talk about having fun with your child while incorporating learning into your everyday activities. You’ll learn about the many ways you are supporting your child’s learning and increase your confidence in supporting them as you enjoy time with them over the winter.
