Wahkeena’s Forest School

What is a Forest School?

Forest School is child directed and play based. This allows learners time and space to develop interests, skills, and understanding through hands-on experiences. At a forest school, children have the freedom to create, play, imagine and engage all their senses while exploring an outdoor environment. Classes take place outside in all weather conditions. In the sessions, children can dig in the mud, use tools, balance on fallen trees, build dens, identify bugs or just relax in the shade. The possibilities are endless, but all focused on promoting wonder and a child’s connection to nature.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19, in-person programming has been suspended for the 2020 season.

This was a tough decision and we are very sorry, but for the safety of our staff and visitors we believe it is for the best. Staff is diligently working on virtual educational opportunities available here.
