HOW IS OUR DAY TO DAY?
In our day to day we relate to her by playing and learning while caring for, loving, and rejoicing in what she gives us. We prioritize the value of interdependence, through play, we learn that Nature not only uses it to nourish us but we also become aware of what nature needs. We spend most of our time in the forest, also for its health benefits; they strengthen the immune system, reduce stress, and stimulate positive emotional states.
The Free Play space is combined daily with voluntary proposals, as well as moments where children enjoy moments of expansion outside and moments of calm in the shelter.
"If you observe, you know; if you know, you love, and if you love, you protect" Jordi Sabater Pi Living real and sensory experiences that will help to grow the enthusiasm to discover the world around them. According to neuroscience, human learning processes begin when the sensory organs - the eye, the ear, the mouth, the nose or the skin - pick up external stimuli such as colors, sounds, tastes, smells ... or, they capture internal stimuli that come from our own body. That is why we believe that Nature is the ideal place for children to grow fully, and have the opportunity and time to develop their unique and original potential, in short, so that they can BE, and from here draw your own path based on your internal map.
