OLE! Texas is a statewide initiative that is organized by Texas Department of State Health Services Obesity Prevention Program. Team member organizations’ and local chapter organizing agencies work within their own organization and collaboratively to advance resources and support for ECEs to implement quality outdoor spaces.
Harris County Public Health integrates OLE! Texas best practices to childcare centers in Harris County. HCPH has seven childcare centers as OLE! Texas pilot sites, three in Pasadena and four in Baytown; and, is working on funding for five future sites in Acer Homes. HCPH also develops best-practices, builds relationships with key partners, and educates about nature-play at conferences. In this session we will discuss the benefits of OLE!, and how we have been able to execute those best practices at Early Childcare Centers in our area. We will talk about the struggles we have had, how we have overcome them, and the successes of this initiative so you too can promote outdoor learning in your area!
Online Workshop is offered twice on February 2nd, 2:00 and 7:00 Central
