Film Description: http://www.schoolsoutfilm.com

No classroom for these kindergarteners. In Switzerland’s Langnau am Albis, a suburb of Zurich, children 4 to 7 years of age go to kindergarten in the woods every day, no matter what the weatherman says. This eye-opening film looks into the important question of what it is that children need at that age. There is laughter, beauty and amazement in the process of finding out.

Panelists:

Dr. Rebecca Hicks, Pediatrician, Mosaic Medical

Rae Alberg, Founder and Teacher, Bend Forest School

Mary Dean, Kindergarten Teacher, Elk Meadow Elementary School
