Wendy-- First thing to turn to for resources is the new Forest Schools Canada organization in Ottawa. They're doing lots of professional development in getting young children outdoors. Also, at Antioch University New England, in Keene, NH, we've recently started a Certificate program for Nature-based Early Childhood which offers professional development courses for teachers. Our web pages describe the program and include a number of good articles about this emergent field. Finally, we have a list of books that we recommend on the topic.
