Nanaimo Forest Kids is an all-outdoors, all-weather nature education program based on the belief that self-directed play and time in nature are the foundations of environmental learning. Our approach is based on the standards and best practice set forth by Forest School Canada. All our programs are facilited by qualified lead teachers (ECE or B.ED) and we are committed to small class sizes and facilitating a deep nature connection.
At Nanaimo Forest Kids we believe that children grow into life long lovers and protectors of nature through close interaction with nature and much time spent exploring. We believe that children's love of nature is fostered by having the freedom to explore their own interests and abilities in the natural world.
