Nature-Based Preschool National Conference: Your Options as Spaces Fill

Natural Start


We are thrilled to announce that attendance at the Nature-Based Preschool National Conference exceeded our expectations, and spaces are full for the Thursday sessions at the Elachee Nature Science Center's Nature-Based Preschool. Discounted registration rates are also no longer available, as they were made possible by a grant, and all the available spaces for that registration rate have been filled.


If you are still interested in attending this year, see below for your options. 




Register for the Full Conference and Attend ANCA Sessions on Thursday

The Nature-Based Preschool National Conference is held in conjunction with the Association of Nature Center Administrators (ANCA) Annual Summit, and registration for this joint event is still open. Thursday sessions at the Nature-Based Preschool are full, but the ANCA conference includes a variety of engaging sessions on topics that are likely of interest to many nature-based educators. Friday nature-based education sessions are fully available, as is the field trip on Saturday. See the registration brochure for more information, and click here to register. 


Register for Just One or Two Days

Spaces are open for Friday sessions and the Saturday field trip (though spaces on the field trip are filling quickly). Register for Friday and Saturday, or just one of those days. See the registration brochure for what's happening on Friday and Saturday, and click here to register. 


Join the Waitlist

Cancellations are inevitable, so if spaces open up, be first to secure them by joining the conference waiting list. Send an email to [email protected] to be added to a waiting list.
