Forest, not urban habitat, is the eternal spring of knowledge. If your city is not blessed by forest near by, if you do not visit forests more often, your children will forever remain aloof from real schooling.
Sensory development can happen best when children spend maximum time with mother nature. There is entire life ahead to learn how to interact with our modern world. Why waste critical childhood?
On top of it, future demands more sensitive and nature-loving generation.Someone needs to take care of havoc created by us 😉.
I imagine an ideal school in our time, where there are no whiteboards, no laptops, no internet for at least half term of the year, spread equally in 12 months, in forest.
What is happening right now? 1-2 day picnic in artificially designed gardens 🙂. That is it about exposure to mother nature! 😀
