Kids Gone Wild

Kids Gone Wild Children are running wild in the mud, climbing high up into trees and playing with knives, but no one is telling them off. There are no fences and adults keep a low profile. This is life in kindergarten - Danish-style.
In Denmark, 10% of pre-schools are forest kindergartens. At the heart of this Danish concept is 'pedagogy', which means nurturing people's natural talents and abilities. This school is run by pedagogue Johan Laigaard, who has a degree in human development and an alternative view on discipline. Johan trusts the children, and their parents trust him. The children must learn through taking risks: "It's not dangerous in my opinion. And if you don't get a little bit of danger, is life worth living? Everybody needs a little bit of kick sometimes."
