GROWE Outdoor School - Winter 2020 - Acorns
About This Event
Enrol now in GROWE Outdoor School this Winter in 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. Started in the Fall of 2019, GROWE offers nature immersion, attribute curriculum children’s programs. The programs will encompass a wide assortment of experiential and inquiry play-based learning. Families are encouraged to enroll their children in GROWE's outdoor nature based school days that will get your wild ones outside and active, as well as generate their curiosity and connection to nature. By offering forest school outdoor educational programming, GROWE is encouraging children and their families to get outside and learn what nature has to offer.

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, nature inspired crafts, gardening, and an introduction to identifying flora and fauna. This 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 Tuesday January 7th, 2020. Spaces are limited! This Semester will start Wednesday, January 15th and end on Wednesday, March 11th. Children must be potty trained and be 3 years old at the beginning of September 2019 to participate in this program. For this semester of GROWE Outdoor School, registration will be $585, based on 9 weeks of instruction.
