Community Roots Academy Offers TWO Wonderful Speakers

August 6, 2017

Through resources provided by the Community Roots Foundation, and in conjunction with Studio P3 and Seedlings Preschool, we are delighted that two new speakers are coming to campus. On October 18, 2017, we welcome Dr. Catherine Steiner Adair, an internationally recognized clinical psychologist, school consultant and award-winning author of The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age. Dr. Adair has studied the ways the wonders of technology and media change how children learn and grow. She guides parents and educators through the process of reaping the benefits of technology while reducing the risks it poses to child development. We know her warmth, humor and compassionate understanding of children and the adults who care about them will make for an extremely compelling presentation.

Nationally known outdoor classroom expert Eric Nelson joins us on Feb. 6, 2018.Mr. Nelson stresses the importance of fostering wellbeing through nature. His book, Cultivating Outdoor Classrooms, talks about transforming outdoor spaces into learning environments where children can enjoy a full range of activities as they spend quality time in nature.
