Programs For Teachers and Educators

Currently we provide online or in person workshops and consultation to educators. Check out our current workshops here

We provide one day or two day workshops on play based, learner directed ways of being. This includes how to facilitate and assess children in a way that provides understanding for teachers and administrators while encouraging children to build inquiry skills with freedom and creativity.

We provide the portfolio part of the Eco Forest school model. This is facilitated by Barbara Sheridan and Richard Gibwanisii Peters. This consists of one weekend in the fall, followed by weekly online meetings and complete with one weekend in the spring. From the course you will have a completed Parent Handbook, Program Handbook and Website. You will have a clear understanding of the Forest School philosophy and the interaction with Annishinabek ways of being and how to leave space for Indigenous voices.

We provide the School Certification for Eco Forest Schools. This certification lets others know that your school follows the principles and ideals of Forest School using a model that understands the Forest School philosophy and how it interacts with Anishinabek ways of being. This is an intensive process where we work directly with your school on questions, understandings, and improvements.

Dates for 2022-23 courses will be announced soon. If you have questions or would like to get on early registration list please contact us

These courses can be taken on their own or as a part of Eco Forest School Teacher or School certification. Find out more on Eco Forest School certification here: Eco Forest School Certification

Our field trip program for teachers to root Forest Kindergarten principles to the Ontario Kindergarten Program is on hold and we look forward to its return.
