children physical activity

As a child, I built a wonderful bond with Mother Nature. Nowadays, when I look at the empty playgrounds and parks near my house, I can tell a lot has changed since my childhood. My parents encouraged my friendship with Mother Nature by telling me to "go outside and play" on a daily basis. Where have all the children gone?
So what if there was a place for kids like me, that was just for kids, with classes geared specifically to the needs and abilities of children based on their age and level of physical and cognitive development. Wouldn't that be amazing? Fortunately, thanks to one couple in Toronto, there is!
