Beyond Dane Chapter: TNT-Tours and Training

Environment is not just about nature. Join us as we explore a bit of nature and learn more about environment as it applies to our classrooms in our training segments.  

We will start our day at the Respite Center, which provides respite and crisis child care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to families experiencing high levels of stress, located at 2120 Fordem Avenue, Madison.  After a light breakfast, we will learn about their program and tour their facility.  
Then we travel to Isthmus Montessori Academy, a 5 Star YoungStar Program offering programs for infants through adolescents.  
Then we will travel to the Horicon Marsh for a picnic lunch, hiking and exploration of the new, multi-million-dollar Explorium.  Please make sure you dress appropriately for hiking in the marsh.  
Finally, we will return to Madison where we will tour the Playing Field, that cares for and educates children experiencing homelessness alongside children from more advantaged backgrounds. The center is funded by a combination of Early Head Start, private and scholarship funding, and partnering other local organizations dedicated to serving similar populations.
Get lots of great ideas and earn 6 hours of Registry credit
