Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

- Lao Tzu

What do we do?

Our programs offer a space for children to develop a love of learning and connection to the natural world.

Through a consistent daily rhythm we incorporate elements of group games, creative art experiences, storytelling, exploration, journalling, mindfulness, open-ended play, and time to slow down to tune into themselves, each other and the world around them. 

Why do we offer mixed age groups?

We offer mixed age groups which provide incredible opportunities for children to learn from each other organically.  The fluid nature of our programs provide space for leaders to naturally emerge, where the meaning of "it takes a village" takes root.

There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.

Safety is Our Priority!

We implement ongoing comprehensive risk management assessments and health and safety protocols. We value running programs in all weather throughout all seasons and take necessary precautions to do this safely.  Our comprehensive information package will be sent out to each registered family.  

All of our staff are CPR and First Aid trained.

Our group sizes consist of 6 to 12 children with 2 staff present in the drop off programs.  This high staff to child ratio ensures continuous attention and mitigation of unsafe or unkind situations.
