“As I continue to learn more, I hope to expand the age group and programs offered to give all families the opportunity to have quality nature based education on their terms.”
“Where The Wild Things Grow”🌱
Nicole J Corbo
Nicole has spent the last three decades educating learners of all ages in nature. She founded Roots & Sky Nature-Based Learning because she believes it is essential that all children, preschool through high school, and the grown-ups who guide them, have access and opportunities to experience meaningful time learning in, about, and with nature. Nicole works with schools and education programs all over the United States, offering outdoor learning program support, professional development, and mentoring/consulting services. Closer to home in Washington state, ‘Frog’, (as she is joyfully known to nature school students & their families) offers support for her community by providing flexible opportunities for children aged 2 – 10 to immerse in Nature Time! Nicole entered the Nature Preschool field by way of Cedarsong Nature School and still leads training programs across the country as a Certified Trainer for The Cedarsong Way. To support other nature-based educators in the Pacific Northwest United States, Nicole directs the Washington Nature Preschool Association (WaNPA), an all-volunteer collaborative of outdoor and nature-based educators, administrators, and consultants. Nicole is deeply committed to furthering understanding of and access to outdoor nature-based learning, because she believes that in nature, we find everything we need.
