“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.” Henry David Thoreau
I dropped into a child care centre yesterday and chatted with the children and educators. We all observed how much we enjoyed the slow pace of summer, the relaxing of routines, the long times spent outside.
Which led to the question of Why? Why can we only slow down in the summer?
How can we bring what we love about summer programs into to the rest of the year?
