Outdoor Forest & Nature School Friday Program (Ages 4-7) Fall

Friday, September 29 @ 9:30 am


Outdoor Kindergarten is about growing nature connected kids from a young age. This means kids who are calmer, more aware, compassionate and joyful. Outdoor Kindergarten is about laying the groundwork for a person who is resilient and comfortable in the natural world – and in their own skin – for life.

Age: 4-6 (some 7 year olds welcome!)
When: Fridays from 9:30-3:30pm (FALL/SPRING TERM)
Cost: $65/day
Ratio: 1 Educator to every 6 Students
*Cost per term is based on number of days in that term

Our Ignited Sparks group engages in meaningful play – all day!

Our educators guide and nurture their natural curiosities and help to inspire them to be confident, independent, and kind humans. We are committed to bringing back the idea of the “Kinder-garden” with our nature kindergarten program.

We facilitate long stretches of purposeful play which follows our beliefs that play should be:

Freely chosen and self-directed.
Where the process is more important than the product.
Where adults do not dictate or structure the outcome of the play.
Should be intrinsically motivated by the children involved.
Our Lead Educators are Ontario teachers or ECE teachers and trained in Forest and Nature School!

Our ratio is 1:6.

Some of the learning includes:

  • -Risky and challenging play
  • -Indigenous knowledge Functional movement skills
  • -Student-inspired projects
  • -Weather resilience
  • -Mental health/mindfulness
  • -Fire building, tool use
  • -Math and literacy woven in
  • -Mapping/compass skills
  • -Cooking and baking
  • -Animal care and empathy
  • -Gardening and cultivating land
  • -Essential oils/natural remedies
  • -Confidence promotion

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.
