Imagina is a parent-child, nature-based, program that meets twice a week during a fall and spring semester. Families attending our program believe that young children learn best through direct experience with the natural world. Our goal is to tap into young children’s sense of wonder about nature while supporting their emotional, social and physical development. Facilitator’s roles are as a mentors and guides, actively modeling curiosity and engagement in nature while allowing children’s interest to lead the day.
Adventures in the Forest
The program is designed to offer school-aged children a space for unstructured outdoor play, where they can interact with the natural world, get messy, climb trees, garden and practice mindfulness and yoga. The program encourages an appreciation and respect for nature, fosters creativity, and encourages imagination. Adventures in the Forest is an ongoing program offered on Saturdays at the Enchanted Forest in North Miami.
Conscious Discipline Boot Camp - Calm, Connect & Coach is a program designed to help parents and caregivers set limits while empowering their children.
The workshop helps parents/caregivers:
calm and discipline themselves first before disciplining the child
help the child see themselves as a contributing member of the family
use the power of attention: what you focus on you get more of
help the child to exercise free will
empower a child that has been hurt by a friend
and most importantly help your child maintain their self-esteem by accepting feelings while setting limits
One day activities designed to respond to community needs, bring families together, foster a sense of community and all while deepening their connection to the natural world.
