About Us

The Colorado Collective for Nature-Based Early Education is growing. 

Our Story

The Colorado Collective for Nature-Based Early Education is comprised of educators, coaches and parents across CO who have a passion for supporting the equity and expansion of nature-based education.  The Collective began as a way of bringing professionals in the industry together and has grown as the mission and pathways to achieving equity and access to nature-based education have become more clear: licensing, coaching, professional development, networking, and consistent reflective practice, inclusive of parent feedback, practitioner feedback, and research.

Strategic Plan

We are in our inaugural year, incorporating as a 501c3 non-profit, and have exciting visions and projects in the works. Check back soon for our roadmap for 2024 & beyond!

How We Work

We are co-creating a peer-to-peer network in Colorado that welcomes participant input and energy at any time in any capacity. We have committed to maintaining autonomy of individuals and groups, while also organizing for more collective power and shared resources. 

New Year Party


We are developing a CCNBEE membership for access to all of our trainings, coaching, monthly meetings, and peer-to-peer supports! While we will always have free resources and meetups, this membership will give you access to the projects and developments which experts in the field have created for the community to use!
