Need help with sabbatic project on nature education in preschools

I am conducting a sabbatical project to document great examples of nature education in preschools in the U.S. and abroad. I am especially in need of contacts in France, Germany, Italy or Denmark as I have an upcoming trip. Any help with names/contact information is appreciated!

Thanks for the info. I don't have any research for 0-3 yet, but will let you know when and if I find some. I am involved in the NACC and have attended the first two World Forums and plan to attend this fall as well. I plan to share my findings. I love Claire Warden's work. Denmark is a possibility as well as long as the ages are five and younger.

Hi Patty

I've just read your bio. Do you know of any research that's been undertaken with children aged 0-3yrs and the impacts and benefits of being outdoors and in contact with nature?

There's lots for older children but I'm struggling here.

Best wishes

Hi Patty

Are you involved with the Nature Action Collaborative for Children? I've linked to the Leaders page and if you scroll down you'll see the European contacts.

Claire Warden has contacts in all these countries and might be able to assist - I'd strongly recommend a visit to Mindstretchers and other pre-school nature kindergartens in Scotland.

There's also a Danish contact too.

Oh yes - there's case studies that can be freely downloaded from my website - mostly about Sweden but it might be worthwhile reading them too.

Best wishes

I could arrange one or two contacts in Denmark as I lived there for 11 years. I know a teacher of 7 yr olds, a special needs teacher and two kindergarten teachers. You can mail me at thenaturals@uk.com.
