Haven’s of Hope, August 23, 2022

Our story of reconceptualization is being featured as a chapter in a book by Shira Leibowitz, PhD, educators from New York. Our story is being published with other stories of early learning programs who have chosen to use the COVID pandemic to reimagine their programs. Our chapter will exist with other stories that have a Nature Based ethos and have reconsidered their values during the pandemic. This was inspired by the article written by Jessica about our month training as a team.
