The Ready for School’s Forest School Program is an opportunity to enrich the preschool experience through nature. Forest School philosophy is that children need to spend a large portion of their day outdoors to get the stimulation and natural learning experiences. Being outdoors provides them with fresh air, encourages imaginative play, creativity, hand-eye coordination, balance, physical strength and mental clarity.
The children will enjoy an outdoor classroom on Tuesday & Thursday mornings and would be able to take advantage of our large yard as well as the forest behind the Centre. The children would always have access to the Centre in terms of the facilities and would have use of one of our licensed rooms when participating in indoor activities. This program will take place outside a minimum of 75% of the time. It’s mandatory for all children registered in this program to be fully prepared each day with weather appropriate dress. This program comes with a separate handbook guide that you will receive upon registration.
