How many people can say they went to kindergarten in the woods? Well forest and nature schools are on the rise and their philosophies can definitely be integrated into public school curriculums. In today’s chat with Sabrina Hale of Hardwood Nature School in Peterborough we talk the benefits of being outside for 3+ hours a day which go beyond increased physical activity and reach our eyesight, our social learning, and our mental health!
