Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.

- Gary Singer

Roots 2 Rise Outdoors offers year round nature-based exploratory programs for children ages 2 to 10 throughout Toronto and surrounding areas. Offering an alternative approach to education, we believe that by facilitating opportunities for children to deepen their connection to nature we are meeting a need that is vital to the healthy development of the whole child and dependent on the future of our environment.



Through play, children have the opportunity to organically engage in experiences that spark their own interests.  We provide children the space and time they need to process the world around them.


Exploration evokes and encourages wonder and awe, without a timeline and the pressure to accomplish a prescribed outcome, they can slow down enough to tune into the natural rhythms of the world around them.


By exploring through play, kids have the space and opportunity to re-connect to themselves, each other and the natural world in a way that is determined by their own experiences.

"Our daughter participated in the Saturday morning program. She enjoyed the walks in the forest, getting dirty, climbing the hills and looking for adventure. Robyn was an amazing leader and opened her eyes to new things. There is no other program like this. I would highly recommend."
