Denmark has preschools for 3- to 6-year-olds that take place almost entirely outdoors, no matter the weather. Kids in these "forest kindergartens" are always supervised, but they have the freedom to explore, to play, to socialize. Along the way, they learn how to interact with the environment and each other. While they aren't yet learning to read, they are learning about biology, physics, botany, engineering, and meteorology. And they learn to have confidence in their own abilities. -via TYWKIWDBI
