   In Bloom in Asheville: Promising Practices in Nature-based Early Childhood Education

Witnessing the enthusiasm of early childhood professionals in their valiant efforts to get children outside has been inspirational and heartwarming. As before, at each conference we will feature the good work of practitioners from each region as well as spotlight the work of Antioch New England faculty members who teach in the Nature-based Early Childhood Certificate program. We invite you to come to one of the 2018 In Bloom Conferences: Promising Practices in Nature-based Early Childhood Education!

Each conference has two keynotes and two workshop sessions, bringing together a diverse array of early childhood professionals, higher education faculty, environmental educators, mindfulness practitioners and naturalists.

When registering, be prepared to select the morning and afternoon workshops of your preference.
