Growing Up WILD is a resource that is invaluable for early childhood professionals. With growing recognition of the need for young children to spend time outdoors, this guide provides practical suggestions for planning activities that are developmentally appropriate and includes all educational domains.

Developed with the vision of changing the culture of early childhood education to embrace learning in the outdoors, Growing Up WILD is the first nationally distributed early childhood professional development program and activity guide that integrates environmental education into the early childhood curriculum.

The activity guide, Growing Up WILD: Exploring Nature with Young Children:

•Is written especially for early childhood educators of children ages 3-7. 

 •Features 27 field-tested, hands-on, nature-based, ready-made thematic units and over 400 experiences in a full-color 11”x17” activity guide.

•Includes outdoor explorations, scientific inquiry, art projects, music and movement, conservation activities, reading and math connections and "Healthy Me" dovetailing with the Let's Move Campaign.

•Involves social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive domains to help foster learning and development in all areas.

•Supports developmentally appropriate practice allowing children to learn at levels that are individually, socially, and culturally appropriate.

•Is correlated to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Standards and the Head Start Domains.
