Campfire Kids: Going Back to Nature With Forest Kindergartens

Radical back-to-nature forest kindergartens where children are allowed to climb trees and play with fire have spread across the country. Will the concept of the Waldkindergarten become Germany's next export success?

Getting back to nature is a good idea for the young and old.

Great idea. The health benefits, both mental and physical, seem considerable encouraging discovery, developing resilience, and healthy attitudes toward nature. Similar attitudes toward the education of German youth, encouraging healthy attitudes, athletic pursuits, hiking, camping etc. have existed in Germany for over a century.

This is a good idea it's never to early to introduce children to nature and wildlife.If they are taught early enough the experience will stay with them for the rest of their lives and will breed in them a love and respect for the world around them.I do have reservations though regarding children playing with fire If not properly supervised and the article suggests that these children were not.
