Outdoor School

In Public Education, Recreation on May 3, 2009 at 1:22 pm

This is an article about the growing trend of getting kids outdoors instead of keeping them cooped up all day. The preschoolers run around in the woods all day, even in the rain. I definitely think that at preschool age kids shouldn’t be confined to a classroom. All of this exercise and playing can only do them good.

But, as the kids get older, I would think that they need to venture indoors and get some other skills. But this is a great way to encourage the imagination that school systems love to kill.
