We see ourselves reflected in nature. We constantly take out of nature’s laboratory new and wonderful things. We nurture great respect for nature and learn how it acts upon us and how we act upon it. Every part of the universe is connected with every other part, and these inter-relationships call for us to care.
Children at Untitled No. 1 learn indoors and out. Natural elements, functions, and systems inspire the curriculum, as children naturally wonder, “How does that happen?” “Why does it do that?” Their natural curiosities exist before children can even articulate such questions, and allowing time to be in nature and to interact with nature stimulates their intelligence. The sciences, maths, arts, languages, technologies, every field of endeavor seems to have roots in the natural world. For children to develop their whole beings they benefit from direct contact with the natural world.
