Nature and Play-based Early Childhood Support
Nature Niños is now offering statewide Nature and Play-based Early Childhood support for public and private early childhood development centers.
TEACHER TRAININGS: Sarah Candelaria, a Master Level II trainer on the NM Trainer Registry, & Sally Anderson, a master in the field of ECE, have a wide variety of Nature and Play-based Early Childhood professional development training created to offer to the ECE field. We are also able to custom design trainings per program's needs.
IN-CLASS COACHING & NATURE PLAY Aside from professional development trainings, NMWF/Nature Niños staff are able to come and provide in-class coaching and nature play experiences with natural loose parts and environmental education projects to encourage a true and meaningful connection to nature within the classroom environment.
NATURAL LOOSE PARTS LIBRARY In partnership with the City of Albuquerque Open Space, NMWF is able to loan out tubs of natural loose parts for nature play in Early Childhood classrooms around the state. Tubs can be borrowed in correspondence with an in-class coaching experience or professional development training. Tubs can be borrowed for up to 30 days.
