Home Schooling

Homeschooling program at Kortright

Program Information

We are pleased to offer programs that are specifically designed to compliment the unique scheduling and curriculum requirements of home schooled students. These programs combine teambuilding, outdoor learning and hands on experimentation with curiosity driven curriculum lead by student wonder and interest. Students meet new friends and build on what they learn each week.

Participants will be split into age appropriate groups of 20 or fewer participants. Program activities are designed specifically for each age group. Parents are welcome to attend and participate with their student. We also encourage parents to drop off their student and pick up after the program or wait in our waiting area in the visitor's centre. Our waiting area is equipped with a library of nature books, a couch, some nature touch items and colouring pages for younger siblings who may be waiting as well. Parents can also take a walk on our trail system on their own while their child participates in the program.

Our programs are designed for participants aged 6 and up. Children under 6 are welcome to attend with their older registered siblings free of charge, however parents will be responsible for their younger children and must be willing to remove the younger children from the area if they become disruptive to the program.
