Enhance Your Child's School Experience While Having Fun Outdoors
Jeffers director, Sil Pembleton, has for many years been helping teachers and parents enhance children's educational experience by showing them the benefits of going outdoors to discover and learn. The ring bound "Go" cards developed for families suggest convenient and practical outdoor activities for helping children realize their full potential all the while having fun.
Jeffers is anxious to share the "GO" (go outdoors) Cards with everyone. We will present, free of charge, workshops for family groups on how best to make use of the GO Cards and the Parent's Guide to Nature Play.
At these workshops a skilled educator will present parents with these resources and lead them in how best to use them in the family setting.
Examples of GO Cards:
