Program Overview

Virtual Nature School children learn in a natural environment on a regular basis, spending anywhere from a few hours, to a half day to a full day outside. Natural learning places can be local woodlands, urban or suburban parks, your garden or yard at home.

We focus on experiential, inquiry-based, play-based, and place-based learning. Not only do kids benefit physically from regular and repeated time outdoors, they also develop emotionally through an ongoing relationship with the land, through experiences guided by the parent or carer, problem solving with siblings, and time with themselves.

Forest and Nature School touches on all subjects and disciplines: in any given moment an experience can cut across math, science, art, literature, physical education, etc. The learning outcomes are based on real-time explorations and experiences, rather than a predetermined curriculum delivered in books or on screens within the walls of a traditional classroom.
