Cedarsong Nature School's Forest Kindergarten

I am the founder and Principal of the first U.S. Forest Kindergarten,  a year-round entirely outdoor preschool, run by the non-profit Cedarsong Nature School since 2007. I have just returned from the international conference on Early Childhood and Nature Education in the Netherlands and Germany. While there, I visited and observed many Forest Kindergarten and Nature Preschools. I was also able to discuss with the European participants the cultural differences that would lead to there being literally hundreds of these Forest Kindergartens in a small country like Germany and almost none here in the U.S. Why do you think there are so few Forest Kindergartens in the U.S.?
