GROTTO FOREST SCHOOL

AGES JK - Grade 8

The Guelph Grotto is now offering an educational program to supplement online, in-class, and homeschool learning. Our Forest School immerses children in nature, focuses on experiential learning, social development and staying physically and emotionally fit. Through interaction with nature kids will learn and develop socially, foster self-confidence, learn respect for the environment, and enjoy the outdoors in a safe and appropriate way.

 

Forest School will help bring wellness and joy to your child’s day!  Free outdoor exploration builds confidence and lets kids learn at their own pace.  Kids will get the opportunity to immerse in nature with all their senses.  Sensory play is important for children’s development and helps them make sense of their relationship with the world around them.

Each day is a new experience. Kids will learn about local environments through exploration and free-play under the guidance of qualified Career Outdoor Educators. Locations will include Rockwood Conservation Area, Guelph Lake Conservation Area, Guelph Grotto Climbing Gym as well as other parks and forests throughout the community and surrounding area.

 

We are excited to bring this opportunity to the Guelph Grotto community! Contact outdoor@guelphgrotto.com with any questions.
