Doing What Comes Naturally: A Canadian Perspective on Nature Kindergartens

Professor Linda Farr Darling, University of British Columbia, Canada

Professor Linda Farr DarlingEarly childhood educators in North America have become increasingly enthusiastic about principles and practices of Europe’s Nature Kindergartens. The seminar is a virtual exploration of one such place outside Sooke, British Columbia. It is a vibrant example of learning in and through a rural environment off Canada’s west coast.

Linda Farr Darling is the first Rix Professor of Rural Teacher Education at the University of British Columbia. She helps prepare teachers for rural and small schools and supports their ongoing professional growth. Her research is on the role of place-consciousness in learning, and the ways teachers and students interact with their communities and the world outside the classroom.
