The idea for a Farming Preschool addresses the fact that children, particularly those living in urban environments, lack direct experience which has misled the children’s perception of the world. For example, today’s children often ignore that milk comes from living animals or that beans don’t sprout in cans. This preschool recognizes that children are inherently and intuitively curious naturalists, which is stimulated and guided to create a unique educational approach, holistically combining nature and food cultivation into its curriculum. Play, nature and technique are combined with the the school farm to create three ways to learn: learning from nature learning from technique learning from practice In this nursery school, a child’s development is encouraged through interaction with animals and plants, which also builds self-esteem and social interaction.
