We work with schools to adapt, create and implement nature-based practices or programs that get their students learning outside! We encourage schools we work with to consider:
- How families and the community can be involved as critical stakeholders. Families and community partners can be engaged in supporting student success through regular updates, engagement as active participants and many other contributions.
- How their NbECE program should be structured to meet its stated goals. This may influence the location of the program, its frequency or program elements.
Recognizing that each school’s needs and settings are unique, our partnership models are flexible and individualized. We provide varying degrees of implementation, from a 3-year track model to a consultation model. No matter the type of partnership, we want to support educators in adapting and designing NbECE into their settings. We are a resource for training, philosophy development, classroom connections and other support as needed.
