Planning Retreat: Words of Wisdom

A morning walk provides the (young) child with a daily opportunity to experience the seasonal changes around him- whether it’s a walk through the woods or around the neighborhood… By experiencing nature… as opposed to merely observing it or, worse yet, being shown it in a book, the child lays rich foundations for future learning, especially in the sciences. Further, morning walks provide rich sense experiences for the child…

Do try to this walk every morning no matter what the weather. Let your child really get to know about his environment and the weather where he lives!
