Fall Session

Nature walk, exploring, open ended play, stories, songs and a whole bunch of imagination. Come join us while the leaves fall andwe welcome winter by catching the first snow flakes on our tounges! Your little explorer will learn through play and explorationwhile building thier resiliance through taking risks


Winter Session

Winter can be a hard time to get outside,we provide the perfect opportunity to connect, play and explore the snow.We will enjoy daily indoor time or fires depending on the weather. Our goal will be to soak in as much crisp fresh air as we can while learning about all that surrounds us.


Spring Session

Spring is a beautiful time of year we watch the snow melt away to reveal the new growth and slowly reveal its beauty. Nature walks will be more about identifying what we see and hear as everything reimmerges. Come and join us!

As soon as we confirm a location, the registration will open up and be announced on our facebook page.

What to expect! 

Nature provides opportunities to take risks, create, imagine and connect. We will provide age appropriate play based learning, time for discovery and allowing their inqusitive minds to run wild! 

We will make the most of our location at the Strathcona Wildernss Center by including a nature walk each class and on colder days a fire (under -15 we will spend part of the class indoors, usually during snack time). We will provide differnet themes, books read during fire/snack time will be enjoyed. The children will also help choose the desired topics to dive into.  Strathcona Wilderness Center is just east and only  20 min drive from Sherwood park.
