Balanced and Barefoot
Updated: Oct 7, 2019
At our July Staff Meeting on July 17, 2019 we were fortunate to be able to welcome in an “expert” for a training called “Back to Nature.” Tiffany Anewenter-Grinker is a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and she led a training for us that she created based off of the book “Balanced and Barefoot.” She talked about outdoor play for children and also provide some knowledge and insight on how certain outdoor experiences and activities can help children reach so many different goals- all while having fun! We were grateful to have this opportunity to learn from an expert about a topic directly related to our programming goals here at ARA.
To earn additional continuing ed hours, staff are encouraged to read the book Balanced and Barefoot or listen to it on Audible and then complete the below reflection worksheet.
