Forest Family Fun Community Group – Fall Session
Saturday, September 30 @ 10:00 am
Our Ignited Forest Family Fun Program begins each morning with free play in the forest.
Some of the benefits of outdoor and nature play include:
Inner Peace & Stress Reduction, Physical Activity Healing, & Mental Health, Creativity, Bonding with Nature and a Heightened sense of beauty.
In this program we work together as a parent council to bring back safe and meaningful free play experiences for our children. As a part of this group you will have the opportunity to share your ideas, have access to the funds for any materials you might want to incorporate and lead parts of sessions if you wish within our structure of free play, adult facilitated instruction. We are equally curious learners alongside our children. We end each session with a community circle of stories, gratitude, songs, a shared snack as we share our discoveries. Caregivers also have the opportunity to connect and meet other like minded adults.
We incorporate the forest school principles in this session!
Some of the learning includes:
- -mixed aged play
- -feelings of freedom
- -functional movement skills
- -child -led play
- -resilience in nature
- -mental health boost
- -sense of community
COST: $5 per session (all the money raised goes directly to support the program)
LOCATION: 18648 Leslie St, Sharon, ON L0G 1V0, Canada & Rogers Conservation Area
Welcome to Ignited Outdoor School & Holistic Learning Centre!
Together, we create space for kids and families to be themselves, ignite their love of learning and shine in their own unique ways! We pride ourselves on creating strong, early and authentic connections to nature. We give each child the time and space to discover who they are and how they learn, and nurture their individual curiosities through play. Our hope is to ignite a sense of community, responsibility and joy in each child to be stewards of our earth family.
