Graduate Education Program Hosts ‘In Bloom Santa Barbara’

In Bloom Santa BarbaraThe weather was clear, warm, and sunny for the second annual In Bloom Santa Barbara: Promising Practices in Nature Based Early Childhood Education event held this year at Isla Vista School and the Orfalea Family Children’s Center on Saturday, November 5.

Once again, educator and author David Sobel, who is core faculty and project director at the Antioch University New England Institute, made a return visit to Santa Barbara to teach one of the courses and to inspire educators from Los Angeles to Santa Maria.

About 80 early childhood and early elementary parents, teachers, outdoor educators, and administrators with an interest in connecting children to the natural world attended.

As seen in the photos, participants shared, learned, and reconnected through play with nature. In Bloom Santa Barbara is part of AUSB’s certificate in Nature Based Early Childhood Education and a concentration in the Master of Arts in Education Degree program.
