Education and learning, either at school or at home, should be fun and Chipper’s Eco-educational series is all about nature-inspired, play-based learning! With books, music, and DVDs, Chipper entertains while also inspiring social responsibility. Every child born in the twenty-first century will experience a bombardment of information and new technologies as they are developing and it’s important to harness these influences in ways that will impact your child positively! Since you can’t shield them from the world, as much as you’d like to sometimes, it’s never too early to start preparing their minds and bodies to become responsible, considerate human-beings.
According to research conducted by Jill Stamm, Ph.D, Co-founder of New Directions Institute for Infant Brain Development, “attention is the very foundation of learning” (Bright from the Start: The Simple, Science-based way to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind from Birth to Age 3). With the huge increase of doctors diagnosing ADHD and what award-winning author of Last Child in the Woods, Richard Louve, calls “Nature Deficit Disorder,” kids attention seems harder and harder to focus in order to learn. That’s why teachers and parents need to update and evolve old practices of learning and teaching to keep up with the future generations extremely short and divided attention spans! We can do this with interactive learning that takes kids outdoors to explore and also brings nature inside, with crafts, activities and digital media provided by Chipper!
Research suggests that exposure to the natural world – including nearby nature in cities – helps improve human health, well-being, and intellectual capacity in ways that science is only recently beginning to understand.

It’s just about time when the kids are going back to school at last! According to the National Association of School Psychologists, getting a new school year off to a good start can influence children’s attitude, confidence, and performance both socially and academically. The transition from August to September can be difficult for both children and parents after a long summer of broken routines and various trips. Even children who are eager to return to class must adjust to the greater levels of activity, structure, and, for some, pressures associated with school life.
The degree of adjustment depends on the child, but parents and family can help their children manage the increased pace of life by starting early, being realistic, and staying Chipper!
