New paths create new memories

Hey Folks, There is nothing more joyful and pure than observing children in their natural environment and doing what children do best, which is to play! It’s pretty fascinating on how a child’s play start one way and seamlessly transition into something else, and then again and again. This morning our students discovered bum slide…

All about connections!

Hi Friends, We often find ourselves taking time to love ourselves and others, while our connection with nature tends to take the back burner. We wanted to focus on how we connect with nature and how nature connects with us. Taking time this morning with our tea we sat in our favourite spots and reflected…

To play, or not to play……Um PLAY!

Hey Folks, As the clouds stuck around this morning, we were welcomed into the forest by some Downy Woodpeckers, White Breasted Nuthatches and the common Goldeneye Ducks. While some students took time to draw, others jumped right into their play. We challenged our Chickadees to start our morning fire, and they went above and beyond!…

Maple Taffy and Pine Sap

Hi Folks, This morning as we wandered and explored we had a flurry of action and evidence of critters such as tracks, scat and finally spotting them within the trees.

Ice rinks and Animal Tracks

Hi Friends, This week at Forest School we we felt very reflective as we looked back on our time spent together, and laughed about our stories, memories and new friends we have all created. We must say finding tracks today is an understatement, we discovered highways of animal tracks, and it was pretty amazing to see…
