nurture through nature

"Imagine a world where the lines were harsh and unyielding, the textures were consistent and variation is unheard of.  Does it inspire you?"
Now image a place where the carpet changes every day, the ceiling is a myriad of different colours, light, shadow and movement. 

The feelings and movement completely surround you, sometimes breezy, sometimes cold, others warm.
Unexpected wonders fly by, sometimes full of colour and somtimes full of noise and movement.

"If we really want children to thrive we need to let their connection to nature nurture them."


Thank you to Nurture Through Nature: Clare Warden, 2007

  1. Aha! Have your been reading her book, by any chance? Claire does visit Australia every now and then. She gives very witty, poignant presentations. Her nature kindergartens are interesting to visit and read about too.
