A few years ago when my son was four years old I managed 'Forest Friends Kindergarten'.  I was an ECD teacher there, in fact I was also the principal, the domestic, the nurse, the driver, the secretary.... you get the picture.

Situated on the edge of the Tsitsikamma forest the venue for this nursery school was a dome, and what an inspirational classroom it was.  The acoustics inside this structure was incredible and such fun to play with.  In the centre of the dome was a rug where we sat for circle time, our shape echoing that of the dome.  Whenever we were in this position calmness prevailed and the children listened in awe.  The working stations were on the outskirts of the room, so the children would move in a circle from one area to the next.  Sometimes, when there were less students, I allowed them to run around the perimeter.  Their bodies would reflect the angle of the dome shape just as we turn our cars into bends. I was often concerned that they might fall but they never did, they actually seemed to be supported in this leaning position.  When it was pack up time I would stand in the centre of dome where the acoustics created a surround sound effect and softly sing a song that enveloped the children and gently carried them from one activity to the next.

I always felt the centre of the dome is a magical spot.  The energy at this point is strong yet tranquil and you cannot help but be in the present moment.  Thanks to Buckminster Fuller, father of the dome, for sharing such an inspiring structure with the world.
