Community Building

Hi Folks, Each week we challenge our students to discover something new that is within our woodland, and this week was no different. While some of our students used their wonderful imagination this morning – playing Wolf pack – which consisted of territories, predators, cubs, stalking and of course nap time, our other students really…

You can find us in the forest!

Hi Folks, Thanks for stopping by to read about another great day at Forest School, and we had such a mix of weather from heat, sun, rain, thunderstorm, lighting, chilly wind, hail and then back to sun, our students are getting used to what Fall is all about. This morning our students warmed up by…

Rain?…What Rain??

Hi Friends, This week we welcomed the rain, and while some of us may stay inside to stay dry, our students embraced the rain and discovered our soil ecosystem, which was full of life! We even learned a  new song called Young and Wild – ask your child to sing it for you! While some…

Music is everywhere!

Hi Folks, Thanks for stopping by for another great day at Forest and Nature School, and with all this beautiful weather we didn’t waste any time. We welcomed all of students with the sound of ukuleles, which led to lots of singing and our students even playing their own tunes this morning. We are always…

Millipedes, Caterpillars and More!

Hey Folks! We are filled with gratitude for the wonderful welcome into the Wasaga Beach community from our new friends and families. Our day was filled with little moments that took us by surprise (literal surprise!.. aka spotted touch me not flowers), and big moments that brought us all together to build relationships. We are…

Welcome Back Chickadees!

Welcome Chickadee Family and Friends! What an amazing day to welcome new and familiar faces back to Forest School, and our Chickadees didn’t waste anytime getting back into the swing of things. We had a busy morning filled with games, running, building, obstacle courses, a very talented band, and our returning students even helped with…

Tasty Treats and Hiking Trails

Tuesday What a hot and beautiful day we had!  After our opening circle, we dove into (or rather quietly sat into) a sensory awareness activity that got us using all our senses.  After some games and further core routines, we headed out for a lunch out a Grape Valley. Students spent the day searching for…

May the Forest be with you.

Hey Folks! Worms and insects are out.  Turtles and Frogs are sunbathing.  Birds are singing and making nests.  Spring is here and here’s the recap of our week, enjoy! Tuesday With emergent interests at the forefront, we were a little all over the place on Tuesday with an overarching theme of Spring – though it…

Fairy Homes, Rock Pets and Caterpillar Obstacle Courses.

Happy Tuesday! We had a great day with our Chickadee program today, and as the title suggests, we did a lot of building. Right away, we watched imaginations come to life as an old driftwood root became a house for Fairies.  Equipped with a door, chimney, balcony, hot tub and much more,  students couldn’t get…

Helping Hands

Hey Folks! Happy Solstice! After our core routines this week and a brainstorm on teamwork, our days differed immensely in what student-interests led us to.  We book-ended all days with sage and sit spots in the morning, and a fire at the end, but otherwise they were so unique, let’s sum them up separately. TUESDAY…
