WESTBROOK — WinterKids has launched a virtual training to go alongside its “Preschool Guide to Outdoor Active Learning” binder. For a limited time teachers can get both the training and the binder for free.

This training is a contact-free option to gain new resources to help with lesson planning for early childhood classes this spring and receive a certificate of contact hours upon completion. An engaging and interactive training, teachers can go at their own pace and receive resources for winter, spring, summer, and fall — with ideas for eight weeks of indoor and outdoor activities like wind and rain art projects, stick math, planting seeds, mud play, and worms.

“WinterKids helps children to discover the joy and health benefits of outdoor education in the winter, and year-round. Knowing healthy habits are built at a very young age, we are thrilled to be able to offer this free, virtual training for preschool educators,” said Julie Mulkern, executive director, according to the WinterKids release.

To register, visit winterkids.org. Participants will receive a hard copy of the GOAL binder and a starter kit for a lesson in the book.

WinterKids is the nonprofit organization that helps children develop healthy lifelong habits through education and fun, outdoor winter activity.
