EDT-5100: Landscape Analysis & Design for Nature Play and Learning

The natural world both invites and supports play and learning. This course focuses on how outdoor spaces can contribute to early childhood education. It uses site assessment, analysis and schematic design as tools to reveal the potential of a location for a nature-based early childhood program. Students will engage in a hands-on sequence of exploration together, imagining how an actual outdoor space can be transformed by using and modifying the existing landscape. Each student will apply understanding through creating a schematic design. Learn how to use boundaries, pathways, and destinations to support play and learning, how experiences in nature can support early childhood learning standards, and deepen your understanding of your role as teacher.
