Scottish Kindergarten, Part 2
Keeler, Rusty
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n203 p74-75 Jan-Feb 2012
One of the author's favorite things in the whole world is a forest school--a nature kindergarten. People have probably heard the rumors: preschoolers outdoors all day long, in all kinds of weather. And it's not just for Scandinavian kids anymore. It is yet another children and nature global movement. More than just adding nature to a playground, or building a natural playscape, these schools take it to the next level and immerse children directly in the natural world. The author describes a Scottish kindergarten program that allows children to roam and explore in nature. [For Part 1, see EJ966298.]
