About This Event
Enrol now in GROWE Outdoor School coming this September to Brant County. Acorns are for 3-6 year olds.
We live in an information rich and connection poor society. Children are consuming information without generating curiosity for learning and connections to themselves, community and nature. The current school system is concentrating on subject curriculum and not attribute curriculum. Outdoor knowledge was once an important part of our everyday living, but has now been misplaced through the generations from lack of education and nature connection. There is a need in our community to add nature connection opportunities to the children’s lives of today. It takes a village to raise a child. Starting this fall GROWE will be offering nature immersion, attribute curriculum children’s programs. The programs will encompass a wide assortment of experiential and inquiry playbased learning. I am encouraging families to enroll their children in our outdoor nature based school days that will get your wild ones outside, active as well as generate their curiosity and connection to nature. By offering forest school outdoor educational programming, we are encouraging children and their families to get outside and learn what nature has to offer.
Acorns: 3-6 year old
Wednesdays 8:30am – 4:00pm
1:6 leader to child ratio
Children in Acorns level Outdoor School are given the opportunity to interact with nature through creative free-play, campfires, sit spots, nature stories and songs, den building, natureinspired crafts, gardening, and the introductory of identifying flora and fauna. Our focus will foster inquisitive minds in hopes to continue their learning beyond the outdoor classroom. Studies show that if children of this age are outside for long periods during all weather they will have a high level of agility, self-sufficiency, self confidence, common sense, compassion and reverence.
Registration and Payment DUE by Friday, August 30th 2019. Spaces are limited! First Semester will start Wednesday, September 18th and end on Wednesday, December 18th.
