Our innovative teachers are registered Early Childhood Educators, Certified Ontario Teachers, Environmental Educators, Forest School Practitioners, or qualified in their field. We are dedicated to delivering high-quality experiences through the application of Forest School and Ontario Curriculum. This offers a balanced learning approach through a mix of hands-on teacher-led and child-directed opportunities.
A day in the life…
Our days vary throughout the week with two afternoons (Mon/Wed) and one full day (Fri) immersed in Nature. During our time in the Forest, teacher-directed science workshops are offered, which are guided by place-based learning. Free play is an important aspect of our program and children are given time each day to explore and engage freely (in the Forest and at our home base). Throughout the week, teacher one-on-ones and mini-workshops including music & drama, foreign languages, geography, history, health & wellness, art, and S.T.E.A.M are offered. We regularly have experts from our community join us to share their skills and inspire us with new experiences. We value being connected to our community and encourage parent participation and volunteers to join us in our programs.
