Mother Nature's Child: A Film Screening and Discussion

    • Mother Nature's Child

Kimberton Waldorf School and Kroka Expeditions present Mother Nature's Child,  A Film Screening and Discussion on Wednesday, February 1 from 7-9pm in the High School Library.

Mother Nature's Child explores nature's powerful role in children's health and development through the experience of toddlers, children in middle childhood and adolescents. The film marks a moment in time when a living generation can still recall childhoods of free play outdoors; this will not be true for most children growing up today. The effects of "nature deficit disorder" are now being noted across the country in epidemics of child obesity, attention disorders, and depression.

Mother Nature's Child asks the questions: Why do children need unstructured time outside? What is the place of risk-taking in healthy child development? How is play a form of learning? Why are teachers resistant to taking students outside? How can city kids connect with nature? What does it mean to educate the 'whole' child?

Parents and students in grades nine and above are welcome. Please RSVP or direct questions to (610)933-3635 x.128 or .
