At Toas Earth Children, we focus on getting the children into their bodies and out of doors. Through the developing coordination of their limbs and fine motor skills, as well as the routine practice of observation through the senses, a child’s mind and imagination are fully engaged and activated. No classroom can compete with the tactile reality of Mother Earth, and all school days are spent outside full-time. Often we are hiking into canyons and forests, visiting rivers, and other wilderness settings. By moving through the landscape, we open our eyes and ears, and our minds and hearts, to the world that surrounds us, helping shape a child’s quiet reverence and enthusiastic joy for their own body, their immediate surroundings, and the value of the earth as a whole.
