How can we stop shielding kids from nature and help them explore it safely? Nature-based educator/author/consultant Rachel Larimore, of Samara Early Learning, explains how to better manage beneficial risky play.

As a founder of Chippewa Nature Center Preschool in Midland, Michigan, Rachel has years of experience working with parents, teachers and children in a nature-based setting. She’s also just released an online video course on risky play, complete with helpful forms and worksheets that schools can immediately put to use.

Check out Rachel’s books: “Establishing a Nature-Based Preschool” and “Preschool Beyond Walls: Blending Early Childhood Education and Nature-Based Learning.”

    I would love to use this in my CD1 class that I teach online. Is it possible to get a copy of this audio file so that I can have it closed captioned?
    Thanks for any information.
