Fall has arrived and we’re happy to welcome some cooler temperatures! One of the many features of our classrooms is the ability to have easy access to outdoor environments. The natural beauty of the outdoors aids child development and by opening our classrooms we allow the students to experience nature’s peace while they are absorbed in their work.

Dr. Montessori believed there is a strong connection between the child and nature that should be embraced and enhanced whenever possible. She said, “There is no description, no image in any book that is capable of replacing the sight of real trees, and all the life to be found around them, in a real forest. Something emanates from those trees which speaks to the soul, something no book, no museum is capable of giving.”  While Keystone is not located in the forest, we have cultivated the outdoors with our students’ needs in mind and support Dr. Montessori’s belief that a child’s education is enhanced in the presence of nature.

When was the last time we took a moment to sit in the peace of nature and truly enjoy our surroundings? Sometimes in our hurried lives, the mountains become part of the background and don’t draw more than a passing glance at the stoplight. The birds perched on the cactus sing and we may not hear their notes as we drive past. Each of us can draw strength and calm by taking even the smallest moment to appreciate the beauty, which surrounds us. Take that walk in the evening, plan a family hike to touch the mountaintop, allow your child to lead you and view the world through their eyes. It will be time well spent and you will find yourself in awe of the way your child still sees wonder in every little thing they discover.
