Nature-Deficit Disorder

 

Outdoor learning is treasured now more than ever with all the ongoing challenges due to Covid-19, and outside is truely the best place to be.

Nothing beats nature! The natural world is a giant ever-changing open-ended learning laboratory full of 3-D sights, sounds, scents & textures providing countless opportunities for imaginative play, discovery, creativity, problem-solving, collaboration and being outside feels SO GOOD! These rich and authentic experiences stay with the children always.

 

Fresh air, open space, blue sky and sunshine; nature is our sensory rich, healing classroom. Add a small pod of friends + a few frogs + lots of learning and fun = a Forest Fun Day to treasure FOREVER!
