Local Activities:
The Happy Farm activities are based on how the land is cultivated , devoting care and attention to the animals, discover the secrets of the garden and its curious inhabitants, collect vegetables, fruits and herbs from the garden and discover the flavors of tradition; those are some of the activities that our little ones can experience being in contact with nature!
The opportunity for children to perform daily choirs on the happy farm, we aim in creating a suitable environment for children's physical and psychological needs, which allows to expand the possibility of "practical life activities" (care of the environment, of self and others). Those are activities that arise from real hands on experience and to develop knowledge of how wonders of nature work, they allow you to "absorb the surrounding environment" and to elaborate it "according to their level of experience"; to experiment and test its own skills, to take possession of themselves and learn with hands on.
This is how your child through the "activities of daily living" on the farm learns about himself/herself, and the way to be with others and nature.

"What the child learns must fascinate him/her, we must give them great things: to start with offer them the world." Maria Montessori.
