Nature is the original multi-sensory learning experience. It’s got it all. Children can access, engage and feed all their senses. It is a full body experience. This forest is a natural library. It contains an endless and untapped supply of multi-sensory learning opportunities children can explore at their own pace. I want my children to have full access to one of our most valuable teachers – mother nature.
