Outdoor Education

We are lucky to be located in a beautiful, forested natural environment, alongside the Ottawa River. Children developing in the outdoors is important, and our classes spend time in nature every day. 

Our Outdoor Education Program, is a child-centered inspirational learning process that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It's a long-term program supporting play, exploration, and supported risk-taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner-inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.
