Nature-based learning is growing in popularity, particularly in the time of COVID. Yet, many find themselves looking for strategies to integrate nature into the preschool curriculum in meaningful and intentional ways. One area of program development that is foundational for children’s play and teacher-child interactions is the physical environment. Statements like “bring nature inside” or “go outside” oversimplify things and don’t address the pedagogy around nature-based education. Further, these phrases don’t address HOW to bring nature in or take advantage of nature outside.
