This is the seventh of a series of eight discussions on principles, processes, and strategies involved in early childhood education, including environmental education. There is cultural capital in education and there is biophilia capital in education to the environment in early childhood. The habitus represents a child's environment with everything in it and this is where the genesis of child development lies.

They have different capabilities when educating them to nature, to society and to their human condition within the biosphere. Respecting those capabilities is the path to showing them the beauty and joy of being alive. It is all about tasting snowflakes!
