What’s a forest preschool?It’s a place where children are not limited by the walls of a building, where their young minds can draw inspiration from nature. Thanks to glamping dome tent, in this unusual type of preschool, education takes place in symbiosis with nature, and children learn about the world around them using their senses: smell, hearing, touch… they can feel the natural world on their own skin. The preschool is based in a forest, so preschoolers spend nearly the whole year on the fresh air, to the benefit of their health and immunity. Nowadays, many children suffer from a variety of conditions associated with modern, urban, sedentary life: respiratory diseases, poor posture, obesity, and hyperactivity.. Many of these problems can be solved by having fun outdoors. Physical activity develops children’s motor skills and prevents obesity. Fresh air purifies the respiratory system, and the chance to tire themselves out in the outdoors calms children.
Contact with nature offers great opportunities for children’s development. Exploring the world through their own senses allows them to make observations, draw conclusions, and see the interdependence in nature. Physical activity combined with fun in safe, friendly conditions is the best form of education. The forest preschool is an attempt to get closer to nature, and to understand and respect the world around us.
