Summary
Publisher's description: In this new book, Claire Warden shares her view of Nature Kindergartens. The term Nature Kindergarten encaptures an approach that provides naturalistic wild spaces that give children an environment in which they can play for very long blocks of time. It encourages a coherent, flexible and enriched natural curriculum and advocates that children are equal partners in their learning, collaborating with adults, being listened to and encouraged to apply their own logic to any given situation. The values that underpin this approach are small numbers of children in homestyle spaces; mixed aged group sessions with children from two to five years; a community hub where parents and carers can network and become involved in the centre; open-ended resources in visually simple spaces that encourage creativity and problem solving; risk taking; ecofriendly and sustainable living; fair trade; physical activity; consideration of inner and outer health; children as motivated thinkers; children as capable and competent; trust in childrens self preservation skills; respect for children
