God's own kids, GO KIDS , children's playing objects and
toys are carefully chosen from the wide array of natural
and hand made products. Wood blocks, driftwood, pinecones,
coconut and pine leaves, sea- shells, fruits and nuts that
grow in abundance at our school farm, stones, rocks,
fibres, cloth, threads, paints are relished as play things
by the children. Young children live in their senses and
nothing feeds the senses better than nature.
GO KIDS, the play objects are introduced to tiny tots and
young ones in a half finished or in an undefined state.
This is done deliberately so that the initiative taking
and imaginative faculties of a child could be honed. The
less finished and the more suggestive a toy may be, the
greater its educational value, for it enlivens the
imaginative life of the child. The toy could have a
resemblance to a soft cloth doll with a minimum of detail
in face or clothing, lengths of colored silk or cotton for
costuming or house building, which the child completes or
creates using his or her imagination.
products of nature are introduced to the children, so that
they can perceive the wholeness of nature. That in nature
all links are interdependent and inter-cordinated, which
in turn creates harmony, balance and completion. In this
way, children at GO KIDS not only celebrate nature but are
also challenged to learn and create from it.
