Nature Nurtures Nature: Connecting Children to Nature in Childcare Centers

Featured Speaker: Adrian Cerezo, Associate Director, Conservation Education Research, Saint Louis Zoo

Does contact with nature make young children smarter, healthier and more well-adjusted and creative? By integrating concepts and methods from the fields of early child development (ECD) and social ecology, Cerezo will present empirical evidence demonstrating the associations between biophilic design features (the human natural elements of the built environment) of child care centers and early childhood development outcomes. Implications for program design, architectural design and policymaking will be discussed.
