Upcoming Fall Events at Westbrook Nature School
Westbrook Nature School in West Redding is holding several fall events open to the public. On October 4 from 9am to 1pm, a Mindful Discipline workshop will touch upon using time in nature and the art of storytelling to create a sense of balance, boundaries and resilience for your child. Babysitting is provided. Woodland Halloween will be offered as a free event on October 25 from 10am to 1pm. A Family Culture workshop will take place from 9am to 1pm on November 22. Attendees will learn about fermented foods and how to make yoghurt, kefir, cultured vegetables, sourdough, kombucha and beer. Babysitting will also be provided for this event.
Westbrook Nature School provides an early childhood nature-based curriculum set on six acres with trails, streams, meadows, an organic garden and natural playscapes.
Westbrook offers parent-child classes, mixed-age kindergarten, adult workshops, playdays and seasonal events. The child’s direct experience with nature, also known as the philosophy of phenomenology, is the starting place for all domains of learning in the Westbrook curriculum. Other recognizable educational streams weave through their curriculum, including Montessori, Reggio Emilia and Waldorf.
