Starting Out Wild Advanced Training

  • Urban Ecology Center Classroom 8400 NW Military Hwy San Antonio (map)

Free and open to all educators, volunteers, parents and administrators who work with 1- month to 3-year-olds. Snacks included.

The SOW program is based on these principles:

  1. The love of nature needs to accompany growing up from the earliest age.

  2. Teaching must engage both children and parents.

  3. Learning will spiral moving from tolerating and participating, to acquiring nature concepts and vocabulary over the 3-year span.

  4. Activities should facilitate children’s experiences through movement and using all their senses. 

  5. Familiar analogs of unfamiliar concepts and vocabulary are provided.

  6. Providing an emotionally comfortable environment is the starting point.

Class size is limited. Registration is required.
