With no explicit math or literacy taught until first grade, the Swiss have no set goals for kindergartners beyond a few measurements, like using scissors and writing one’s own name. They instead have chosen to focus on the social interaction and emotional well-being found in free play.

by Marius Hardut last modified Jan 20, 2015 07:23 PM

For me, the answer comes down to a pair of compelling insights. First, the present disconnect between kids and nature literally threatens the health of children.

Five Easy Steps for the Observer
