Forest School Programs

Forest School runs every Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 3:30pm during each term.

  • Spring Term: Apr. 2, 2019 to June 5, 2019 (10 weeks)

Students have the option to register on a full school year basis (all terms) or on a per term basis for Fall, Winter, and Spring. Before and after care options are available. The cost for these programs is $65 per day plus HST.

We have designed our weeks around various nature themes for each season but are flexible to the interests, curiosities, and questions of our students and the opportunities for learning that arise with each day. Exploration, inquiry, reflection, and community building are all part of our daily activities. We work on developing positive learning habits through core routines that promote student achievement and lifelong skills. Check out "A Typical Day" for an overview of our daily activities.
