How does your space influence your thinking? Our spaces need to be designed with meaning and purpose as the “third teacher” influences our mindset. As the co-founder of Natural Pod, Bridgitte’s ideas come from her experience.
Bridgitte Alomes – As a thought leader in environmental design for natural play and children’s learning environments Bridgitte Alomes, CEO and Co-Founder of Natural Pod, has supported over 1,000 learning environments, and has engaged 30,000 educators through her workshops and presentations. For the past 10 years, Bridgitte has been dedicated to play-based pedagogy, environments and materials for educators, families and children. The importance of the environment around children, how they interact with it and what is presented to them, is paramount and Bridgitte is on a mission to make non-toxic and natural play synonymous. Her goal with the natural play philosophy is to create an education-changing impact on children, educators, and classrooms alike.
