These beautiful words are from her book 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.
Claire also has a new blog - and don't we all love a good blog - called Inspirational Early Childhood Education.
The good news is that if you live in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Perth you can hear Claire speak about her approach to nature education at the Educating in Nature: Inside, Outside and Beyond - bush, beach, outback creek Conference in November.
You book your tickets here. I'm going to the one in Sydney - let me know if you are going so we can introduce ourselves!
