Who is John the Snail and When Can We Meet Him?

Thank you to Louise Zimanyi and Olga Rossovska, Professors of Early Childhood Education at Humber College for this article, 'Who is John the Snail and When Can We Meet Him?: Parent Perspectives on Children’s Engagement in a Forest Nature Program' posted in the Journal of Innovation in Polytechnic Education. As the abstract shares, this study explores parent perspectives on how time spent in nature and natural settings, including their own experiences with the natural world, might influence their child’s play, learning and holistic development and connections in and to the natural world.
