Forest Preschool - if every child could spend at least part of their day in a natural setting with very little adult intervention like this here... Notice how cooperative they are when in an environment like this. And again, the more simple the toys, the more complex the play can become. These children's imaginations are in over-drive. We need children who can think creatively since the majority of jobs these kids will have when they are older have yet to be invented. -Angelina
