The lives of children have radically changed over the past few years. They have little free time and their lives are structured, organized and timed nearly to the minute. Today’s children are less connected to the natural world than at anyother time in history.Nolonger is free timespent outdoors. A growing bodyof research has demonstrated that the natural world holds numerous benefits for children and adults. It is still mysterious how the mind, body and spiritgain from exposure to and experiences with nature and empirical evidence forces us toreexamine and rethink the lives of today’s children.This natural connection has been replaced in various ways – greater interaction with the digital world, less unstructured outdoor play,and growing urbanization. This decreased exposure to nature has consequences thatwe are just beginning to understand.Research across disciplines now suggests that this disconnect (both figurative and literal)has far-reaching consequences for the health and well-being of both individuals and the natural environment in which they live and act. Children are smarter, more cooperative, happier and healthier when they have frequent and varied opportunities for free and unstructured play outdoors. In this paper we present the results of the research made on children aged 5-6 years in kindergartens in urban and rural environment. The results that are statistically processed give us the conclusion about the connection of children with the natural environment.
