Shanghai Connection

This week, TPS welcomed representatives from a newly forming school in Shanghai, China. Of particular interest to the visiting team was our approach to environmental education in an urban setting. Preschool teacher Lisa Hoke hosted the visit, which included a tour of preschool and kindergarten classrooms and a conversation about the curriculum and the pedagogy behind nature-based play. The highlight of the experience was seeing our youngest students play in the Garden on an exceptionally warm winter day!
