Children’s Programs

Barrie Forest Kindergarten is a place where children, adults and families find their wildhood. Through forest school, and project based learning they build their creativity, innovation skills, resilience and problem solving skills.

At Barrie Forest Kindergarten we believe connecting children with their wildhood is important. We believe children not only learn through play but learn to work with others, find their sense of place in the natural world, to problem solve and discover and pursue interests through play. At Barrie Forest Kindergarten we support this learning and exploration through a safe outdoor yes environment, materials and adult facilitation only when needed.

Though we do not pre plan learning activities or script the day we do carefully consider how to best use the environment to support and show trust in their learning and process through play. We have several camps that have been chosen for their unique ability to encourage the children in exploring their wildhood. We bring an ever evolving forest kindergarten kit that is tailored to their interests and needs and the day is structured to allow the children to make decisions about where they are, how they want to connect and how they want to pursue their interests in their play.

We also believe children through to adults deserve to pursue their interests as play as well. We facilitate Project Based Learning that is fun and engaging!
