Research shows exposure to nature is critical for child development. Farm and nature-based education programs explicitly combine expertise and practices from early childhood and environmental education. Turn Back Time, Inc., (TBT) provides farm and nature-based programs for children, including those with exceptional needs, to learn and develop through play in nature. While TBT has years of experience in nature-based early childhood education, they lack a knowledge base in environmental education. The purpose of the project was to research, develop, build, and assess nature and play-based science, technology, engineering, and math learning stations at TBT to help fill this gap.
