um, this is so cool. these kids in sarasota springs go to preschool largely in the forest. it’s part of the waldorf school system, which encourages learning outside, but these kids are outside three hours a day, regardless of the temperature. (i suspect that in the most extremes they would be inside or well protected against the elements).
given how much my niece hates being outdoors, i can’t help but think this is a great way to introduce littles to nature.
