Growing up healthily and in harmony with nature.
At Little Green House we discover the secrets of nature and the joy of a healthy lifestyle along with our children.
Learning from nature
We spend time outdoors daily and in nearly any weather. Together we explore our surroundings, the woods and the meadows. During excursions we observe animals, big and small. We discover how nature itself can be the funniest toy and a great means for producing beautiful art. In spring we create our own little garden beds, then weed and eventually harvest them ourselves. This way we live the rhythm of the seasons and learn to consciously treat nature’s resources with respect and care.
Living joyfully and healthily
Running and playing outside is so much fun. And at the same time, it is essential for building a healthy immune system. We satisfy children’s need for movement with outdoor games and our excursions into the neighbourhood. And we also try and bring the neighbourhood into our menu. In our kitchen we use many regional organic products: lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole foods and meat from Swiss farms. These foods and our practices influence the children’s taste right from the start.
For us, ‘living in harmony with nature’ is an important element of growing up happily and healthily. Learning to enjoy time outside and to cherish what nature has to offer, lays the foundation for a natural balance and relief from more stressful periods later in life. It teaches children from a young age on how to take care of their own physical wellbeing and it develops an effortless understanding for the importance of nature and sustainability.
