Forest – promoting well-being of children and adults
Nature, particularly the forest, is an important part of the early childhood education environment. The forest promotes overall well-being in both adults and children. The mind becomes peaceful and relaxes in the forest, and heart rate, blood pressure and stress are reduced. Studies indicate that positive effects occur already within 15 minutes of being in the forest! You may also have the opportunity to meet fairy in a Finnish forest…
Our Early Childhood Education and Care Study Tour takes participants to explore nature with Forest Daycare kids. Fresh air and plenty of new exciting phenomena to learn from!
