Forest School Programs 3-5 year olds

Forest Kindergarten Introduction

This is a one day a week program which is an introductory program for children 3-5 who thrive in an outdoor setting. In this program children are supported in their transitions to more complex play, emerging cognitive skills for inquiry learning, personal independence skills and their emerging social skills to learn to work with each other. We believe the best way to accomplish this learning is through their play and through facilitation only when needed. There will be one spot open to a toddler under the age of 3. We also believe in small groups so teachers can effectively use child centred learning approaches and focus on social and communication skills between children, there will always be a 5:1 ratio or better!

All New Family Forest Kindergarten

All New Family Forest Kindergarten much like our Monday forest Kindergarten from the child’s view.  It  is a one day a week program which is an introductory program for children 3-5 who thrive in an outdoor setting. In this program children are supported in their transitions to more complex play, emerging cognitive skills for inquiry learning, personal independence skills and their emerging social skills to learn to work with each other. We believe the best way to accomplish this learning is through their play and through facilitation only when needed. 

The Wednesday program has a focus on parent education as we have had a lot of requests from parents about doing the trainings that we provide for teachers and educators in Canada and the United States around the Ontario Kindergarten Curriculum, play and child directed learning so we are allowing parents a window to see the play, and the Ontario kindergarten goals and so much more in action. Most weeks children will be dropped off however throughout the session we create time for parents to have the opportunities to see the play, and the Ontario kindergarten goals in action while their children participate. The goal is that parents will take what they learn and be me more confident seeing the Ontario Kindergarten Curriculum, play and more and follow up with visits using the same techniques in their own local nature area or at home with their children either as part of their parenting, their homeschooling or even their schools if they are educators themselves.
