Nature Preschools and Forest Kindergartens is the latest from environmental education expert David Sobel. Joined by a variety of colleagues to share their experiences and steps for creating a successful forest kindergarten program, Nature Preschools and Forest Kindergartens walks you through the European roots of the concept to the recent resurgence of these kinds of programs in North America.

Going well beyond a history lesson, these experts provide the framework to understand the concepts and build a learning community that stimulates curiosity and inquisitiveness in a natural environment. This helpful guide provides the curriculum ideas and guidance needed to foster special gifts in children. It also gives you the nuts and bolts of running a successful nature preschool business:
  • Potential obstacles and concerns
  • Staff and curriculum design
  • Best practices for success
  • Site and facility assessment
  • Business planning and how to successfully market your program

Review: Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review - May 19, 2016
Nature Preschools and Forest Kindergartens: The Handbook for Outdoor Learning provides a fine alternative to indoor digital classroom settings and advocates developing an outdoor program for preschool and kindergarten groups. It advocates a different, nature-based approach to learning that encourages kids to get down and dirty outdoors, blending theories about nature-based learning with discussions of nature centers, curriculum, language development, and understanding the risks and benefits afforded by nature-based play. The result is a powerful blend of research, theory and applications that will allow parents and teachers to take the next step in linking a child's natural enthusiasm for the outdoors to a play environment that makes the most of this instinct.  
Review by: John Flicker, Prescott College President - August 5, 2015

This book will change how you think about early childhood. The authors combine scholarship and experience to make the case for nature-based learning for young children, and offer a practical guide for how to do it. It's a must-read for anyone interested in connecting children to nature.
