January 28: Nature’s Child, Whole Child – Hicksville SEPTA

Christine Keller, M.A., M.S.Ed. will present Nature’s Child, Whole Child – How To Cultivate the Different Abilities of Our Youth at the Hicksville SEPTA meeting this month. All are welcome!

Participants will learn how “planting seeds of stewardship” in children and young adults through nature-based and experiential learning experiences leads to the development of the “whole child”. Combined with the use of “Collaborative & Proactive Solutions” to solve problems and build skills, our youth are able to minimize anxiety and behavioral challenges, experiencing a deeper sense of well-being and improved relationships while more effectively engaging in the learning process.

You will learn more about:

  • Students with Range of Different Abilities and Learning Styles
  • Challenges in Society Today Reflected in Our Schools
  • Understanding the “Whole-Child”
  • Remedying Learned Helplessness and Underachievement
  • Providing an Enriched, Supportive and Flexible Learning Community… as a Bridge to Understanding Self, Others and the Natural World
  • Skill Building Through Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS)
  • Community Partnerships to Empower and Inspire

Interactive presentation with Q&A throughout. Resource information provided.

We will introduce attendees to our 2020 plans for Sangha Education Center – “A Place of Wonder” where heart-centered learning inspired by nature supports and empowers young people with a range of abilities and needs.
