|Forest Kindergarten is where Mother Nature is the Teacher!
Nature-minded, outdoor school programs are popping up all over the world in areas such as Germany, England, the Czech Republic, etc. A growing number of Germans are sending their children to Waldkindergärten or forest nurseries where they spend their days outside learning in Nature’s classroom.
Forest schools teach through experience. Kids are encouraged to dig in the dirt, climb trees, run wild and learn to enjoy all that nature has to offer. Children who have zero knowledge of nature won’t grow into adults who aim to preserve it. These outdoor classrooms in the forest are best for kids today who are trapped in stay-indoors mentality.
