film maker lisa molomot kindly sent me a copy of her latest work, school’s out: lessons from a forest kindergarten. a couple of years ago lisa chose me as her subject for a short video made for etsy, (something i will treasure for the rest of my life). we watched the film last night with our kids and each of us not only loved it – none of us could stop chattering through it about what we saw. the film follows a year in a controversial swiss kindergarten where learning takes place out doors year round in the forest. no reading or math. there is a lot of play, building fires, sharpening sticks with knives, rope swings and nature all around. it’s pretty fascinating to watch, the children are 7 years old. they interview a few kids later when they’re a little older and of course they’re confident, curious, beautiful kids. you can see a clip here.
